Beautiful Handwriting Guide
Includes information on the stages of writing and techniques to use to guide students to become writers. A sequenced method to teach writing is presented. It helps students build muscular memory and links to Montessori materials. Tracer sheet samples and student work are included. The Beautiful Handwriting Method was created by teachers along with student input. It has been used in schools and by parents since 1992.

"Written language can be acquired more easily by children of four years than those of six. While children of six usually need at least two years to learn how to write children of four years learn this second language within a few months." Dr. Maria Montessori

We introduce the alphabet in alphabetical sequence. Years ago we did not. We used a different method. Several students asked us, "Why are the letters mixed up?" We asked, "How do want them?" We want it to be like we sing the ABC song." We asked, "Why?" They responded, "We know it that way." We changed it and kept out 2 baskets. We tracked the usage for 2 months. The alphabetical one was always chosen over the mixed up letters. We interviewed the students and they all agreed that they liked the ones that they knew.

Color coded Card Stock Dividers are used in writing baskets to organize writing tracer sheets. They have the name of the tracer work printed at the top. Once students understand the order of the dividers they become independent in choosing their work and moving through the writing sequence. Dividers for the following backline writing books are included: Pattern Writing, Number Writing, Letter Writing, Me Basic Writing, and Picture Word Writing.

About the sequence students choose: Each child follows their own path. Guide them to begin with patterns, greeting cards, numbers, letters and words. Let them repeat the ones they wish to. Often they like to do one pattern sheet, one number or word sheet and then end with a greeting card. Knowing they get to do the card at the end somehow sharpens their focus no the first two or three sheets they do.
