Introducing Mat Man

The Prepper class uses the Handwriting Without Tears handwriting curriculum. Our very first lesson is always the introduction of Mat Man. The curriculum uses wooden pieces of different shapes and sizes to teach children to “build” each letter before writing. This is a wonderful technique that makes understanding written language easy and fun for little ones. We first use the different pieces to construct Mat Man. This gives us a basic understanding of shape as well as perspective and the human form.
