Everyone enjoyed winter camp this year. From Lego creations, book making, to holiday crafts we did not let a moment past without having handwriting adventures. Please contact me for information regrading joining NEW after-school handwriting group this January.

These samples are from one of my students, a 7-year old boy, who I tutor. During his sessions, we worked on visual and fine motor activities which in turn improved his ability to control his pencil when writitng. As seen clearly, improvement was noted in memory ( remembering and writing dictated letters), orientation (facing letters in correct directions), placement (putting letters on the baseline), size (writing too large for current grade), start (where each letter begins), sequence (order and stroke direction of the letter part), and lastly control (neatness and proportion of the letter parts).

The above sample is from a 6-year old boy who attended a 5-week Bookmaking Class. As you can see from Jack's last few pages of his comic book, improvement noted in his letter formation of lower case letters, alignment, letter size, and spacing.
The above is another sample from this 5 week class. As you can see both printing and cursive letter formation were addressed. Improvement with letter size, alignment, and letter formation were noted and reported from her mother.
Another fun sample from class.
