A carefully-structured course, offering beginners essential preparation for learning to write and introducing varied writing techniques. Pre-writing patterns help to develop eye-hand coordination and correct hand movement. Correct letter formation and basic letter patterns are then taught, using initially a simple unjoined script style. Later, the techniques of cursive and joined script writing are taught in separate books. Attractive illustrations provide visual stimulation and meaningful contexts for pupils to write words and short sentences. Detailed teachers' notes give guidance on the approach to be used.
