Handwriting Without Tears

Recommended Posts

I agree, that's all you need. And, it's likely you don't need the pre-k AND k book. Either will give the info you need. I bought a box of chalk and broke some pieces in half to help with the grip, and cut a new sponge into little pieces. works fine. You can use your own play-doh, if desired, write in shaving cream, rice, sand, etc.

If a person does not have a TG for any other grade level, I would recommend getting the TG. I didn't use it often, but I did find it very important in the beginning to help me understand the how and why of the HWT philosophy.


I really like HWT a lot. It is one of my very favorite curriculums. I've now used it with 4 children, from pre-k to 3rd grade level.


For pre-k, I use slate, chalk, workbook and the wooden pieces.


Other options that I've liked very much include:

laminated letters to go with the wooden pieces

the pre-k music CD--it is very good quality music and easy to listen to
