PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perfect for helping children establish efficient motor habits when you need to:
☞ Extend your curriculum.

☞ Supplement instruction for low flyers.
☞ Send home for homework.
☞ provide RTI.
Letters are specifically sequenced, grouped by similar formation, to help children use skills they already have to learn new letters.
Capital letters are made with lines and curves and are the prefect 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:
• Each page has path of movement language so any adult can support movement learning. **
• Capital letters are grouped and sequenced in development order.
• Picture cues 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.
**Path of Movement Language is included throughout the book for ease of use in individual or small group setting by a teacher, interventionist, school volunteer, or parent.

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.

CAPITALS FIRST!: Book Two is designed to be used following basic Print Path instruction with the use of CAPITALS FIRST!: Book One.
