LEARNING WITHOUT TEARS CONNECTIONS

Curriculum, materials, and professional development that makes teaching and learning fun and easy.

Strategies For Success

Learning Without Tears® creates developmentally appropriate strategies that instill in students a love of learning and to help all learners succeed. We believe that all students deserve equitable access to high-quality instruction and that children benefit from different modes of learning.  

A-Z FOR MAT MAN® AND ME

And Phonics, Reading, and Me

Letter learning is a multifaceted skill that includes knowledge of letter names, letter sounds, and letter forms. This integral skill, also known as alphabet knowledge, is crucial to early literacy and has been shown to be one of the strongest predictors of later literacy development.  

A–Z for Mat Man and Me teaches alphabet knowledge and seamlessly prepares children for Set A of Phonics, Reading, and Me™, which builds high-utility phonics skills such as short vowels and consonant digraphs. 

HANDWRITING WITHOUT TEARS®

And Phonics, Reading, and Me

Phonics, Reading, and Me™ includes the trademark handwriting models that are core to the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. Together, both programs deepen literacy learning, reinforcing and extending handwriting instruction and phonics skills.  

HWT: Writing is applied phonics.  Integrated handwriting is a powerful addition for early literacy programs.

PRM: Students further use the tactile written forms as they are practicing phonics skills via encoding and writing skills in response to the texts they read.
