The approach we use to teach actively and explicitly in a developmental sequence

We teach the easiest skills first, and then build on prior knowledge. All letters are taught in small groups of similar formation. Children master the easier letter groups, and then move to the more difficult letters groups.

We incorporate stages of learning from imitation to copying to independent writing
We help children develop their writing skills through explicit, multisensory, play-based instruction

Children move, touch, feel, and manipulate real objects as they learn the habits and skills essential for writing. We use music to speak to children and promote movement and memory.

The workbook is carefully planned so that it is accessible and friendly and promotes excellence.

The workbook pages promote efficient, effective practice for each letter using child-friendly, consistent and simple language, large step-by-step letter models, line generalization and success on all paper styles.
