This grant will provide our students with more hands on materials that go along with the current Handrwiting Without Tears Program. These developmentally appropriate materials will allow students to build and create number and etters, develop fine motor skills, and provide a fun learning experience in addition to the workbook practice.
This program is developmentally appropriate for our TK/K students to develop and practice their fine motor and handwriting skills. These materials will enhance our learners through the use of multisensory tools, music, and literature.
We will measure the success of the program by monitoring students' progress in their ability to correctly form and write numbers, letters, and shapes.
These materials will be used during whole class explicit instruction, partner work, flexible groupings, literacy and math centers, as well as during RTI time.
Yes, we will share this grant across the TK and K grade levels. We will collaborate during PLC to ensure that success of the implentation of the program.
We would be so excited if you fully funded our grant, we think it would be such a great benefit to our little scholars!
