As an Occupational
Therapist I know all too well about supporting children
in unlearning ineffective handwriting habits.  Preventing
detrimental habits that have a strong negative impact on
lifelong writing fluency is what I am all about.  I am passionate about
bringing fun, engaging, and developmentally appropriate tools to
teachers, parents, and therapists.

I developed are for preschool and
beginning kindergarten children. They are loads of fun
and target essential fine motor and perceptual skills. 
This First one “I CAN
MAKE MY NAME” is all about giving kids 5 and under an easy
and accessible way to construct their names with lines and
curves. 
Pizzas curves and Pencil
lines are cut [straight line cuts only] and are then glued onto a name frame.

Letter cards activities
include sorting and partner tasks. 
Posters can be used to help children
look at and count the big and little lines is each letter.  
Children then make their own nine page
alphabet booklet where they count lines found in each letter.  I have
found this skill to be essential for children to
understanding, remembering and then write letters.

 These classroom books offer
community building opportunities throughout the year. 
At the beginning of the year teachers
may want a name and picture book to be in their class library.  This
WELCOME TO OUR ROOM book lets each child ‘write’ their own name. As all names
are completely legible your children will all
feel successful and on an even ground.  
The next “Say Hello” books
offer children the opportunity to read names of those most important to them,
and by tuning the page receive immediate
picture confirmation that they did it right!

I have just learned how to publish
editable documents and so now I am able to offer them to you!
 The WELCOME TO OUR ROOM and Say Hello books can be changed to
add in the teacher’s name, different phrases or whatever you may
prefer. 
Children understand greater
understanding of letters and hold greater quantities in their heads when they
can count the big and little lines in others names.  On the
sheet pictured here, you may handwrite names but if you prefer open up the
included PowerPoint file and add your students names using your preferred font.
 I personally like a few
handwriting fonts that are free for personal use.
