CAPITALS FIRST Book 2 Explicit Handwriting Instruction is perfect for helping children establish efficient motor habits, extending your curriculum, supplementing instruction, homework and providing RTI. Letters are specifically sequenced to help children use skills they already have to learn new letters.
Letters are specifically sequenced, grouped by similar formation, to help children use skills they already have to learn new letters.
Capital letters are made with lines and curves and are the perfect way to begin instruction so that your children learn to start letter formations at the top! Print Path letter font is compatible with Handwriting Without Tears materials but allows your children to learn formations on the three-lined paper they are most likely to encounter.

Research has shown that children are not ready to form lowercase letters until they can form a square and an X. [Benbow, Hanft, & Marsh, 1992; Beery & Beery, 2010; Daly, Kelley, & Krauss 2003; Marr, Windsor, & Cermak, 2001] We do not want to have children write in lowercase before they are ready as letters that are consistently practiced incorrectly are embedded into motor memory and will lead to future legibility problems.
