LWTears.com Summer School Resources Guide 2023 Steer Your Summer Toward Success! Inside Personalized Handwriting, Reading, and Writing Practice for Pre-K–2 Students

The Path to Fall Success Starts in the Summer!

Handwriting Without Tears has a new solution to accelerate handwriting skills this summer! If your students need extra support to be writing at grade level, or are ready to go beyond their grade level, our Summer Programs nurture writing automaticity through direct, explicit instruction along with guided and independent practice.

Handwriting is a critical skill that provides the gateway to literacy. When children fall behind in early writing skills, it can have an adverse effect on all subjects!

Help your students meet the writing expectations of their next grade with more confidence. Based on our evidenced-based curriculum, we have expertly condensed our handwriting programs to support summer school, enrichment programs, tutoring and aftercare programs.

Student Editions: Designed for Handwriting Success

• Large step-by-step models for finger tracing

• Double lines promote correct letter sizing and line placement

• Practice pages encourage proper sizing and line placement on different styles of lines

• Learn & Check feature helps students reflect and self-check their handwriting practice
