Lots here to help support the teaching of handwriting for both experienced and novice teachers. The CD Rom has super animations of letter formation and excellent photocopiable resources, assessments, warm up exercises, a letter for parents etc, all with explanations of the how and why. Excellent value resource for any school.

Amanda McLeod is a genius! Not only is this book for teachers and children (left or right handed), it is for parents too so they can help their children. Lenny becomes a firm friend to your children and makes the exercises fun.
The advice Amanda gives is in great detail and immensely valuable. The CD rom offers interactive fun, which as we all know children love. Once they've mastered the letters on the computer they then have the confidence to put them to paper. There is an extensive range of exercises that can be done immediately in the book or on paper.
Amanda gives informative background knowledge, together with enjoyable activities that children want to do and that don't seem like "learning". This book is clear, concise, enjoyable and with plenty of ideas to help your children. A book that every parent should have, nothing has been left out.
