Handwriting is one of the foundational skills that leads students toward automatic word recognition. In this program our students write by hand, practicing letter formation and letter recognition. Once they begin to recognize the shapes of these individual letters they can prepare to begin reading. Through this program, they will learn to retrieve the symbol for the sound automatically, so as students practice Handwriting Without Tears (HWT), they are learning to transfer that knowledge.
