Curriculum subtitle

 

 

Our three and four year-old preschool classes use Get Set for School which is part of the Handwriting Without Tears® curriculum.

“The Handwriting Without Tears® curriculum draws from years of innovation and research to provide developmentally appropriate, multisensory tools and strategies for your classroom. The program follows research that demonstrates children learn more effectively by actively doing, with materials that address all styles of learning.”

Handwriting without tears

“This curriculum prepares children for kindergarten in a developmentally appropriate way…It will help 4-year-olds get set for school by helping them develop coloring, drawing, counting and beginning writing skills. Look for the alphabet, pictures, colors, shapes, Mat Man®, letters, and number. Children will sing, color, draw, count and write all year long.

The fundamental part is the careful way in which we use hands-on letter and number play. Children happily and actively build letters and numbers before they write. We also teach them how to hold and use crayons. These are the early habits that will serve them well next year and every year.
