Integrates Grade-level Subject Matter with Skill-Building

Handwriting Without Tears' student editions are designed to impart more than fluent writing skills. Embedded activities in each edition help students connect handwriting to grade-appropriate math, social studies, ELA, and science topics.

Teacher's Guides and Student Editions

Make the most of your instructional time with cross-curricular activities that enrich each lesson. Each teacher's guide provides strategies and classroom activities help you teach handwriting and review other grade-appropriate skills and topics that connect to other lessons.

When children learn lowercase o, they learn that O is for owl. The lesson then includes a social studies connection to go through an exercise where children compare nocturnal animals (like owls) with diurnal animals. These connections help reinforce learning and make handwriting relevant in all subjects.
