Handwriting Without Tearms

Our Curriculum

Children who have mastered handwriting are better, more creative writers. The earlier we teach children to master handwriting, the more likely they are to succeed in school, and write with speed and ease in all subjects.
More than three million students benefit from the Handwriting Without Tears® program each year. We use fun, engaging, and developmentally appropriate instructional methods to enable children to master handwriting as an automatic and comfortable skill.
Our curriculum makes handwriting easy-to-teach and easy-to-learn. 



By playing, singing, and building letters, kindergarten students develop the important skills they need to print words, sentences, and paragraphs. You will teach grip, letter and number recognition, and capital and number formation.


Children learn to print using hands-on materials and developmentally appropriate activities. In grades 1-2, students progress to printing mastery, with lessons that focus on functional writing practice.


Our simple cursive style helps children make an easy transition from print. Using the same multisensory techniques, the cursive program begins in third grade when children have better developed hand-eye coordination.
