Experiencing learning-to-write struggles? "Handwriting Without Tears works!" says a happy homeschooling mom...


I am new to homeschooling and used Handwriting Without Tears for my 6 and 8 year old children.

Handwriting Without Tears is very simple, straightforward and very inexpensive. I like that you don't need a lot of extra materials and they give you a lot of ideas to improve handwriting, such as using sand, shaving cream etc. You also don't have to spend a ton of time each day. The kids love that. I highly recommend this handwriting program.

Jessica, Thanks so much for sharing your experience your experience with Handwriting Without Tears. Your comments are helpful and greatly appreciated! Blessings, Heather :)

Last year I tried Handwriting Without Tears for my home schooling kindergarten aged child. We have used it for a little over a year and are now ready for the next level.

We went ahead and bought all the extras like the wooden letter shapes, chalk board and teacher's manual. I was very pleased at how fast my child began to pick up on the shapes and contours of the letters. I've actually noticed a big difference in the handwriting style too. I guess since it really breaks it down for the child they get it in the brain the shape to write.

The pricing was decent, but we bought the program at a used store and then went on half.com to find matching pieces we needed. If you're looking for a great easy way to teach handwriting to your preschool or kindergarten aged child, Handwriting Without Tears is for you!

Thanks for sharing your Handwriting Without Tears success story and for recommending an easy-to-use program for parents who are home schooling kindergarten or preschool children. I appreciate it! Blessings, Heather :)

Handwriting Without Tears Homeschool Writing

Rebecca's Homeschool Writing Curriculum Review

Rebecca's Homeschool Writing Curriculum Review

I'm using Handwriting Without Tears homeschool writing curriculum for my four year old son son for help with -skills. I'm using the preschool goodies. My son loves the activities and they seem to be working.

There are lots of extras for purchase. I found the cd to be helpful. The kids love the songs and they really are sweet and fun. The wooden letter pieces are unnecessary, in my opinion, as the teacher's manual has a template to make your own. I recommend this as it will save you money. The little pencils are nice. The paper is great. I don't think you need the "magic c" bunny. Seems extraneous.

As for the materials themselves, they're really great. I do wish that there were more practice pages, but I just make my own when my boy needs more practice on a certain letter or line type.

Overall, I really love this homeschool writing curriculum for learning to write! It's fun, easy, and gets the job done!

Homeschool Writing Curriculum: Handwriting Without Tears Review

No-Tears Homeschool Writing Curriculum

The Handwriting Without Tears homeschool writing curriculum is amazing. I was able to take my 5yo special needs daughter from recognizing only 4-5 letters to recognizing AND writing all 26 capitals in just 6 weeks!

The format and order of the letters makes transition to the more difficult letters seamless. The coloring activities help break up the lesson with some fun and also give conversation pieces for the sounds letters make!

I suggest getting a white board from the dollar store to practice the letters further, it helps the child to write that same letter they learned on a different type of "paper".

Thanks for the review and tips for Handwriting Without Tears, Kristi. Your insight will be helpful to parents looking for an easy-to-use homeschool writing curriculum for their young child/ren. Blessings, Heather :)
