Handwriting Masters

Handwriting Masters
Handwriting exercises engage the brain in a way that calms and directs children to focus differently. Children in their sensitive period for writing trace over shaded numbers, letters and words daily with great awareness and joy. They use colorful markers and pencils. They practice and perfect their skills with this simple, sequenced method. It is effective, fun and relates back to class work. The Beautiful Handwriting Method materials were developed in Montessori classrooms over 20 years ago.

"Having oppotunitites to write with different materials helps motivate children to write and build fine motor skills." Greer & Lockman 1998

"The act of putting it down forces one to focus on what's important. It helps you think better. A recent study concluded that students learn better when they take notes by hand than when typing them. Writing by hand allows the student to process a lecture's content and reframe it. This is a process of reflection and manipulation that can lead to better understand the memory encoding."

Student Writing Books
These small books are designed for children to do their work in. They can do a few pages and keep them in their cubbies for another day. They can move through them at their own pace. Use these with students as a review. Give out these books after students have used the writing basket work from the shelf. These are a review of that work. I can see who has correct formation and what they need reinforcement on. Parents love getting these little books home. They can see the progress their child has made. Some public schools that are not able to make copies for the writing baskets use these books for students.
