“Kids usually first attempt writing during the preschool years… they begin to understand that symbols, including letters and numbers, have meaning. Teaching your child to write isn't as easy as putting a pencil in his hand and showing him the alphabet. Before he can print his name legibly, he'll need practice in multiple areas.” Write On! Teaching Preschoolers to Write (Parents Magazine)

Let’s Learn to Write – Script is a brand-new workbook designed for the practice of precise writing techniques at home and in the classroom for students 4–6 years old, in Kindergarten and Grade 1. This workbook is child-friendly and provides unlimited practice on reusable dry-erase paper inserts, readiness activities and pre-writing patterns that develop hand-eye coordination and correct hand movement.

Illustrations provide visual stimulation and meaningful contexts for pupils to write words and short sentences. Let’s Learn to Write – Script also comes with an easy-to-use parent or teacher skills checklist to easily monitor each child’s development.

The writing exercises at the beginning of the workbook encourage students to practice their ‘pencil grip’ and make free movements in line with the instructions. As they form letters, students learn that letters make words and that words can be put together to form sentences. 

As a bonus, the book also includes the writing of numbers!
