How to Use the First Strokes Handwriting Program in a School Setting
Training manual for the First Strokes Handwriting Program. Comprehensive manual to train how to teach handwriting, stroke sequence and patterning, and memory skills through the First Strokes Program. Includes free printables!

The First Strokes Handwriting Program is very much a motoric handwriting program, designed to get patterning and sequencing of letters. This program is perfect for students to:

1. Learn to sequence letters correctly from top to bottom
2. Have memory of the letters (write letters from memory)
3. Learn sizing and spacing of letters
4. Learn to "touchpoint" the writing lines (write within the lines)

The handwriting programs were designed by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR, an occupational therapist from The Handwriting Clinic/FIrst Strokes Products. First Strokes products are on TPT within The Fine Motor Store. All products on The Fine Motor Store were designed by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR.

The First Strokes handwriting programs have been used within school districts for many years. With the launch of TPT for Schools on TPT, we have launched the First Strokes Handwriting Programs as digital downloads on TPT as individual licenses (single use license - for one person to use within the classroom), or building licenses (one school or building - to allow use with multiple users within the building - a district would need to purchase one license for each school or therapy department, etc).
The building license allows an affordable way for schools to teach handwriting with a research based program that has already been used within districts for years. You will not find more affordable, complete handwriting programs!
