Handwriting Witout Tears (HWT):
Our easy-to-teach, easy-to-learn curriculum makes handwriting mastery joyful for students and their teachers.
Research supports the active teaching of handwriting. Recent findings demonstrate that writing by hand improves creative writing skills and fine motor skills. In fact, elementary students have been found to write more and faster by hand than when keyboarding.
And with the adoption of the Common Core State Standards, the emphasis and expectations placed on classroom note-taking and expository writing in grades K–5 is greater than ever. (an exerpt from the HWT website)
Communicate faster and with more confidence with increased keyboarding skills. Currently the public school system can only provide one half of an elective to devote to this important lifetime skill. Children can be taught to type at a young age, making testing and paper writing much more stress free later in school. A playful group environment using games and drills and friendly competition can make learning fun and easy.
