Ta-da! We’ve been dropping hints like breadcrumbs about what secret developments we’ve been working on, but today we’re finally revealing the new Learning Without Tears line-up. The New Year has brought brand new editions of all of our teacher’s guides, new journals, and a new grade level for transitional kindergarten. We’ve also added a new line of writing worksbooks for extra practice—plus, a revolutionary new way to teach handwriting in the digital age! Let’s take a look at how we’re revolutionizing handwriting instruction in your classroom:


New Student Editions and Teacher’s Guides

• Now includes multimedia options for each lesson

• New, more intuitive teaching guidelines and lesson plan design

• More writing activities!


Journals (grades K–5)

• Offers opportunity for developing independent writing skills

• Provides developmentally appropriate writing practice


New grade level: Kick Start Kindergarten for Transitional kindergarten

• Bridges Pre-K and kindergarten by introducing capitals and lowercase letter formation

• Provides developmentally appropriate activities, and fine motor skills development

• Gives differentiated instruction and cross-curricular activities


Even more writing practice…


Building Writers (Grades K–5)


Building Writers is a new line of student editions that offer extra practice for writing skill development and can be easily incorporated into a writing block as independent writing or as whole group practice to meet your students’ varying needs. Students become better, more fluent writers as they write about cross-curricular topics and practice three types of writing styles: narrative, information, and opinion.


• Structured practice to build core writing skills

• Developmental approach to writing 

• Offers customizable writing templates to fit with any topic

• Builds confident communicators and improves overall communication skills

• Eliminates the need for worksheets
