Instructional and engaging, this DVD will help your emerging writer learn how to write the slanted printing style (also known as "modern manuscript"/similar to D'Nealian or McDougal, Littell) using visual modeling and easy-to-follow verbal instructions. An "Introduction" track offers suggestions on the proper pencil grip and posture, how to help left handed writers, and how to recognize and correct common writing problems (such as extended thumbs or thumb wraps). The remaining two tracks teach the letters. Each letter is preceded by a colorful graphic that introduces the letter sound and two sight words to help develop literacy skills. After various letter selections, drawing breaks using the letter strokes taught help to make practicing fun! Also included are "Look2WriteT" breaks where students hear the word and then try to find it on the DVD graphic; the word is then highlighted, read, and spelled to provide additional reading support. Submenus allow teachers, parents, occupational therapists and students to access each letter directly to practice specific letters.
