Print Path OT


* Letters starting at the top promote fast and fluid handwriting that is legible throughout the student’s life. Print Path’s instructional program aligns with motor learning principles, and letters are specifically sequenced to help children use skills they already have to learn new letters.
* Words and sentences are ‘blocked’ to teach motor memory in functional chunks.
* Print Path reinforces CCSS skills and provided positive social and emotional messages.
* Illustrations provide phonics and reading connections and are culturally inclusive.

Do you want your children to use legible and automatic handwriting in their everyday work? Are you tired of giving your students worksheets that they hate and that do not help them write correctly or efficiently in their daily writing?

Winged Writers: Upgrade your teaching to include research-based best practices. Legible and automatic handwriting is not old-fashioned; two decades of research has found that handwriting is the single most important factor accounting for success in written language skills. Proven multisensory methods to teach printing supported by quality practice pages, lesson plans, letter posters and teacher’s guide.

* PrintPath uses its own font that more closely resembles Handwriting Without Tears 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 most lowercase letters are made with single strokes. Print Path has its own distinct curriculum with scope, sequence, visual cues, verbal path of movement language, and multisensory methods. If you are looking for the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum follow this link. 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. Go-dots and arrows are research-based best practices to help your learners use correct letter formations toward the goal of forming life-long automatic and legible handwriting.
