PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Quality handwriting instruction involves more than providing letter worksheets. If you have been giving dashed-line alphabetical-order handwriting worksheets to your students, consider upgrading your handwriting instruction to include research-based best practices. A succinct scope is shared in the Teachers Guide, which is included with the CAPITALS FIRST practice book. Letters are specifically sequenced to help children use skills they already have to learn new letters.
Capital letters are made with lines and curves and teaching capital formations is the perfect way to begin instruction so that your children learn to start letter formations at the top. Print Path letter font is compatible with Handwriting Without Tears materials but allows your children to learn formations on the three-lined paper they are most likely to encounter.
Included:
• Teachers Guide with research-based practices outlined.
• Practice book with CAPITAL letters grouped and sequenced in a developmental order.
• Structured Sheets provide phonics and reading connections.
• Gray boxes and go dots serve to help children learn correct motor memory.
• Path of movement language used to teach and help your children recall letter formations.

Research has shown that children are not ready to form lowercase letters until they can form a square and an X. [Benbow, Hanft, & Marsh, 1992; Beery & Beery, 2010; Daly, Kelley, & Krauss 2003; Marr, Windsor, & Cermak, 2001] We do not want to have children write in lowercase before they are ready as letters that are consistently practiced incorrectly are imbedded into motor memory and will lead to future legibility problems.

PrintPath uses its own font that more closly resembles HWT than Zaner-Bloser or D'Nealian. Letters have a vertical alignment, they do not push off the writing line, and it is visually evident that lowercase letters are mostly made with single strokes. Print Path has its own distinct curriculum with scope, sequence, visual cues, verbal path of movement language, and multisensory methods.

*************** Teacher Testimonials ****************
✪ I've already seen great improvement since using this! Thank you!
✪ This is great! I'm a special educator and have a handful of students who are not receiving OT services yet but will really benefit from practicing their letters. Thanks!
✪ We do each page 2-3 times and do 1-2 pages a day! It's great morning work!
✪ This is perfect for our Work on Writing folders for the beginning of the year to reinforce our HWT instruction. Thank you!
✪ Very well designed program! I love the way the letters are broken into sections based on their strokes.
✪ Excellent, well-designed program both for school and home.
✪ Love the combination of HWT and traditional "hat line, belt line, and shoe line." Students have been responding very well!
✪ This is EXACTLY what I've wanted for the last few years teaching with HWT. It's so hard to transition to the dotted midline paper, but this solves my headache!! Thank you!!!
✪ Beautifully laid out, and I love the use of conventional lines. Thank you.
✪ Added this as a supplement for my students. It has short, easy worksheets that reinforce what is in the Winged Writer book. Plus my kindergartner, my son, will just love how easy he can learn to form his letters without any fuss or tears. Another great addition to my handwriting curriculum. Thank you.
✪ Very excited to work at home with my daughter to reinforce her school's HWT program
✪ Handwriting Without Tears is a fantastic program, but it desperately needs supplemental materials. I searched all over and found your products at last. THANK YOU for an excellent supplement!
✪ So glad I got this for my class this year. They loved the handwriting sheets and even though it was the same activity every day they felt like it was something new.
✪ Thank you SO much for creating this! I was so relieved to find an affordable alternative to handwriting without tears. My students are doing really well with your curriculum, and I can already see huge improvements in their writing! Wonderful product!!
