Hands-on Tools with Get Set for School
The hands-on play-based learning in the Get Set for School® Pre-K curriculum seamlessly extends the alphabet knowledge building in A-Z for Mat Man and Me - particularly to early emergent readers.
Use hands-on learning to extend:
- Alphabet Knowledge
- Phonological Awareness
- Concepts About Print
- Oral language
- Social-emotional Learning
The research is clear – handwriting is inextricably tied to early reading success and beyond. During students’ developmental phases, honing handwriting skills is crucial in building the brain networks necessary for strong reading proficiency.
Handwriting Without Tears introduces writing elements that create a seamless path for students transitioning to A–Z for Mat Man® and Me. The wide double lines from HWT help students develop their fine motor skills before advancing to regular double lines in the latter half of the program and throughout A–Z for Mat Man® and Me.
