Hands-On Learning Day 2! ⠀ Today we are talking about *another* tool from the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. We love to use our Stamp & See set from @lwtears to help our students learn proper formation of letters and numbers! ⠀ The thing we love about this set is that kiddos get to build the letters using magnetic wooden pieces, and then get to write the letters using the tiny magnetic marker. ⠀ The thing our students love most about this is definitely the magic eraser! Has anybody else noticed that erasers of any kind are a huge hit with young learners?! ⠀ #handwritingwithouttears #handwriting #pediatricot #mahattankids #manhattanmoms #hamptonskids #hamptonsmoms #nyckids #kindergarten #preschool
