PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a complete stand-alone activity book for use with the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. This activity book encompasses all of the handwriting skills needed for students to be successful - all in one book.

The activity book offers guided letter formation pages with uppercase and lowercase letter practice, "letter checks", and a picture for students to color that incorporates phonemic awareness. There is a "words for me" and "sentence for me" page for each letter, that expands on sight-word knowledge and allows for discussion on sentence structure, word spacing, and ending punctuation. Each letter also offers a fun poem for students to copy and illustrate. The poems contain a focus on the target letter and allow for creative reading and artistic drawing. Reviews and assessments are also included in the activity book. There is one review page and one assessment page per each set of 4 letters. The review pages review letters and words with students. The assessment page assesses students ability to correctly write the focus letters and their ability to copy a complete sentence correctly.

A numbers section offers students practice in writing number words and numerals. Students practice their numbers through the use of the rhyme "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe". A complete number review page follows the lesson pages.

The final portion of the activity book contains many of the activities that are hard to find in one book when you need them. This additional practice section contains practice pages on punctuation marks, apostrophes, quotations, word spacing, writing on different types of lines, days of the week, month abbreviations, lowercase letter matching, HWT-themed practice such as frog jump capital review and magic c letters, and many more.

There is a final check in the back of the book that tests students knowledge of all the capital letters, all lowercase letters, and the numbers 1-9.

This activity book really has it ALL! Download the preview to take a look at the format of the pages and to see some of the fun activities included in the student activity book.

Also be sure to check out my HWT-style Teaching Resources. This guide contains numerous resources that I use in my classroom when teaching the HWT-style of handwriting. You will find clipart, letter formation scripts, poem assessments for each letter, journal page masters, gray block paper masters, multi-sensory lessons such as wet-dry-try and working with wood pieces, self-assessments, challenges and games, and there is a beautiful certificate of completion to present to students upon completion of the activity book. So check it out!

Also, the pictures in the student activity book correlate with my HWT-Style Classroom Wall Cards and HWT-Style Student Nameplates. Fully integrate your classroom using my HWT-Style line of products!

This is exactly what I was looking for. I have the HWT Wet/Dry/Try boards and many pieces of the program, but wanted to teach it with capital and lowercase letters together. I do wish the lines were bigger. I ended up blowing each page up a bit and it has worked well for my class. Thx!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  February 12, 2014,  Buyer asked:
Which HWT books is this correlated to? Does it cover the same things as the workbooks K through 2nd (up until cursive)? Does it have the progressive line change from wider to smaller?
Teachers Pay Teachers
n/a
On  September 23, 2012,  J M. asked:
Hi. Does this packet address the letters in the same order as the HWT Program student book?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 23, 2012T. Hutchens answered:
So sorry for the delayed response! The letters in the Activity Book are presented in alphabetical order. I thought this would be more convenient for homeschooling parents and for teachers who want to copy single pages. I introduce the letters in the HWT-preferred order and just have students turn to the correct page. Also, there are a few review pages that practice letters in the HWT-style way, such as Frog Jump Capitals, Diver Letters, Magic C letters, etc.
On  August 24, 2012Quinndergarten (TpT Seller) asked:
Does the HWT activity book have pages to practice 1 uppercase letter at a time? Likewise, does it have separate lowercase pages? Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 23, 2012T. Hutchens answered:
So sorry for the delayed response! The HWT Activity Book provides practice for uppercase and lowercase letters at the same time. There are no individual practice pages for the two letter formats. I did this on purpose. My students seem to benefit from practicing the two letter formats at the same time, as they can better associate a capital letter with its lowercase partner.
On  August 23, 2012Elana Levine (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi. Do you have anything HWT style for cursive practice?
Elana
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 23, 2012T. Hutchens answered:
So sorry for the delayed response! I do not currently have any materials for cursive practice. I have the HWT cursive fonts, but I do not work with students past 2nd grade and therefore I have not created any cursive handwriting practice materials. If this is something that you are interested in, I can add it to my list of future projects!
