Before and Afters from Spring Break



The above handwriting sample is from a 6-year old boy. Using Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, he was able to quickly improve letter size, letter formation, and word spacing within the weeklong spring break camp.

Below is a follow up email from his parents after camp:
"Thank you so much for your work with K on his handwriting. We noticed immediate improvement. K matter of factly informed us that he had 'used the skills I learned at Ms. Tiffany's' in school on the first day back! K's teacher did notice marked improvement as well -- and, he enjoyed the experience, for which we are eternally grateful. A most gratifying outcome for us has been that he is no longer reluctant to write."

The above handwriting sample is from a 4-year old girl. Using Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, she was able to quickly learn letter size, and letter formation within the weeklong spring camp. Prior to camp, she had no lower case instruction. We quickly progress throught the upper case letters the first two days of the week, leaving the last three days to focus on numbers and lower cases letters.
