Handwriting Without Tears Teacher Workshop

I need to be trained on how to implement the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum which will help my students learn to write in a developmentally appropriate way.

My Students

I have a very lively bunch of 3- through 5-year-old students. We like to do things hands-on so we are up, moving and using all our energy in positive ways! We are always on the go and always very busy! Therefore, our days need to be planned out with activities to meet the specific needs of the students! We are always actively engaged in our lessons and learning while we are having FUN! (Shhhh! Don't tell them it's work; it's our play and fun that helps us learn!) Most of my students come from low-income families in the city of Pittsburgh.

My Project

"The award-winning Get Set for School® Pre-K curriculum uses lively music and playful activities to help young children build a solid foundation for school success.

This upbeat workshop introduces a readiness curriculum full of developmentally appropriate activities that teach children about letters, body awareness, numbers, sequencing, and sharing in a fun, engaging, and informal manner.

The Get Set for School Pre-K Readiness & Writing Workshop is an introductory level class." - As stated on the Handwriting Without Tears Website

After attending the workshop I will be able to take my newfound knowledge and materials back to my classroom to implement new strategies to teach my students how to write in a developmentally appropriate way, without tears!
