Developed by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR from The Handwriting Clinic. It includes a training manual to teach how to do multi sensory handwriting! The file includes:
1. A zip file of the First Strokes Special Education Workbooks (separate upper and lower case workbook files), training manual, learning modules, and the Billy Learns His ABC's Storybook.
2. Morning Worksheets - with 5 differentiated levels. Perfect for a worksheet for every day of the week for each learning module! The morning worksheets progress from tracing and copying the letters, to tracing and copying primer level high frequency rightwards. Then progresses to tracing and copying sentences. Sentences have picture/word support. Students trace the outline letters - all letters show a dot for the starting point and an arrow. The outline letters are a very easy way of getting improved tracing. Students then copy the letters in the correct sequence. Last the student will work on writing words and sentences. If one worksheet per day is used, it would be worth 130 days of lower case practice, or 78 days of upper case practice! Perfect to generalize handwriting from the workbook and multi-sensory activities for learning letters. Perfect for differentiating activities with students of different levels!
