1. Lowercase at Last -Book Two:
This 34 page book is designed for children of developmental ages 5 to 8 years who have had good initial explicit instruction [e.g. starting with Capitals First and then Lowercase at Last Book One with Teachers Guide] but have not yet developed motor memory of using single stroke letter formations and starting letters at the top.
2. Progress-Monitor Tool, a 4 page guide: Learning letter formations are the foundation to developing automatic handwriting which in turn is the foundation to written communication. If your children are having difficulties, this tool will help you to quickly and efficiently find out which letters are correct, what the primary area of difficulty is and then document progress.
3. Lowercase Group Formation posters. This file includes the
Four groups of lowercase letters based on similar formations to maximize efficient motor learning.

For free and paid products that engage and support children’s math and literacy development while also promoting fluid and automatic handwriting skills, consider Print Path products.

Print Path© utilizes research based best practices for handwriting, literacy and math instruction including a single stroke vertical manuscript letter font which is compatible with either Zaner-Bloser© or Handwriting Without Tears© (HWT) style font. Print Path is compatible with HWT materials but allows your children to learn and practice formations on the three-lined paper they are most likely to encounter.
