Handwriting Without Tears

The Handwriting without Tears® curriculum draws from years of innovation and research to provide developmentally appropriate, multisensory tools and strategies for your classroom. The programme follows research that demonstrates children learn more effectively by actively doing, with materials that address all styles of learning.

We teach effectively in a fun and joyful setting. We have figured out easier, happier ways for children to master handwriting. Handwriting without Tears® is dedicated to developing excellent materials for children and training for teachers.

  • Help children develop their writing skills through explicit, multisensory, play based instruction. Children move, touch, feel, and manipulate real objects as they learn the habits and skills essential for writing. We use music to speak to children and promote movement and memory.
  • Equip preschoolers with the essential pre-handwriting skills, teach the capital letters of the alphabet and inculcate good handwriting habits.
  • Focus on teaching the formation of uppercase letters of the alphabet, improving the grasp pattern on appropriate handwriting implements and facilitating proper handwriting posture.
