We use the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum to learn handwriting in the Preppers class. It’s a fun way to learn proper pencil grip, line strokes and line placement. We always begin our curriculum by learning to build “Mat Man.” He helps us to understand the human form, which is a big part of handwriting.
We finished a morning full of learning with an impromptu freeze dance party! Freeze dancing is a great way to learn to stay focused, follow directions, and follow the rules of a game. Partner dancing requires cooperative communication and builds strong friendships and bonds.
