Kids love Handwriting Heroes
Laughing makes things fun – even learning! And when things are fun they are more memorable. That’s why our letter stories are packed with wordplay, slapstick, and playful pranks. Not only does it make for a good laugh, but it also keeps kids engaged and boosts retention. Even older students appreciate the comical stories, and will often add their own twist. When learning about the letter r, a “bouncer” that drops down, then bounces back up and onto the rabbit’s head, one student joked that the bouncer should rather bounce onto the rabbit’s rear!
Teaches letters in groups based on the similarity of strokes
Teaches lowercase print first to maintain consistency with the symbol forms used for reading, writing, and spelling
Uses multi-sensory teaching to appeal to all learning styles
Promotes good posture, proper pencil grasp, and paper position
Uses a continuous stroke that retraces the line instead of lifting the pencil
Learn to write in just 5 weeks!
On day one, the first group of letters, namely l, t, k, i, and j (aka the Skydivers), are taught in a 30-minute, step-by-step, fun-filled lesson. These letters are practiced each day of the week for 5-10 minutes. The following week the next group, the Bouncers are taught; followed by the Cannon Pops, Skiers, and finally the Surfers. And, before you know it, the students can write all 26 letters! The lightning-speed at which they learn to write is mind-boggling; but rest assured, Handwriting Heroes has been tried-and-tested for over a decade with children of all abilities, and it works!
