Print Path OT


Handwriting instruction, initial sounds, and phonetic word practice for kindergarten or the beginning first grade. Upgrade your printing instruction to include research-based best-practices with this Occupational Therapist designed practice book and teacher’s guide. Letters are grouped and sequenced so that children use skills they already have to learn new letters. Each letter grouping gives you three pages so that you can provide adequate instruction and practice before moving on to the next letters. Letters are reviewed at the end of each of the 5 units. Effective handwriting instruction involves more than providing dashed-line alphabetical-order worksheets to your students! Your kindergarten children will be engaged and motivated by their successes with printing!

This free sample is taken from the Lowercase at Last! Book One. Letters are specifically sequenced to help children use skills they already have to learn new letters.
• Gray boxes and go dots serve to help children learn correct motor memory.
• Structured practice sheets provide phonics and reading connections.

* Print Path 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.
