Just a quick post to say that I love - LOVE - the Handwriting without Tears materials! Bean has really taken to it, and she is excited every morning to do her lessons!
And she is retaining what she learns!
And I just want to say that these Early Childhood teachers really tick me off - for both Bug and Bean they made excuses as to why the kids couldn't hold the pencil properly. Always excuses.
What they needed to do was just tell the truth and say that they didn't have the time or didn't care enough to make the time to teach the kids proper technique.
Bean is holding her pencil, while not perfectly, quite well! All it takes is consistency and a little motivation - and that's in only a week of my working with her!
