Help children master writing letters via a multi-sensory approach, developed by an occupational therapist. Visual, verbal, and kinesthetic cues introduce and reinforce each letter. Simple, yet fun, this program is ideal for kindergarten students. It is suitable for some younger children. This bundle combines the two resources LEARN LETTERS Upper Case and LEARN LETTERS Lower Case.
What makes Handwriting Help for Kids and LEARN LETTERS unique?
1- A special three-step approach consists of pages called “LOOK”, “LISTEN”, and “MASTER”. Learning letters using multi-sensory techniques suits all kids, whether they are visual, verbal, or kinesthetic learners.
2- “Letters groups” are organized according to similar formation. This means that children learn letters with similar kinesthetic and pencil movements, such as with the lower case ”Tall Pals” group (letters b d h k) or the upper case "Down and Bumps" group.
3- “Letter Stories”, unique to this program, provide consistent verbal, visual, and kinesthetic cues to help kids master correct letter formation.
4- “Starting Stars” show children where to start letters.
Visual perceptual, visual motor, and fine motor skills are crucial when it comes to handwriting. Too often, occupational therapists and teachers see children struggle to learn and master letters because of weaknesses with these skills. Now, children can practice these skills with the LEARN LETTERS workbook!
On these two pages children practice visual perception and visual motor skills for a new letter group.
* 1st Page: Identify the TALL, SMALL, or FALL letters and color in the circles beneath them.
* 2nd Page: Choose which letter does not match. Make an X in the box beneath. (Draw from dot to dot.)
Kids use auditory skills to remember proper letter formation.
* Read the “Letter Story” for a new letter.
* Ask children to repeat it 3 times. They draw accompanying strokes on the large letter model.
* Kids practice writing the letter below, using short or broken crayons (which promote a pincer grasp)!
* Practice writing the new letter on this page.
* Follow directions at the bottom of the page to master differences between TALL, SMALL, and FALL letters.
