I am currently using this product with my almost-6 year old daughter. She is excited about learning to write with Visual Handwriting. I like that it’s self-correcting! 🙂
Nice quality pages and super helpful for students with fine motor control issues.
This is a great tool to help children to begin and/or practice handwriting. We use it extensively for our kids, also have them write sentences with the sheets.
I’m 34 yrs old and back when I was 6 I learned my cursive with a similar product, since has little and big squares it was very easy to practice and end up with a very good handwriting, it is the standard handwriting method in Chile. But now that I an adult and have a 5 yr old of my own I find very difficult to teach my daughter her letters. I was going to order some from Chile and spent lots of money just on the shipment. I am so glad I found it, I tell you that is a great learning method.
Our kids love your writing pads! As a child learns to write there are many challenges with using blank paper or lined paper. Your writing pads provide blocks that help the children organize their characters on the page. The shaded row is perfect for them with lower case letters. It provides the correct spatial area that an early writer needs. I have seen some rapid improvement in the children’s writing with them using your pads.
When a concerned mom couldn’t find any solution in the market to help her son’s prolonged writing struggles, Channie took the matter into her own hands and developed this revolutionary learning and writing method to fix every challenge her son Alex faced during his first 3 years of school. In two months, Alex’s handwriting improved dramatically and astonishingly fast! In fact, local elementary schools were so impressed that they immediately adopted this new method for their students as well!
Watch why Channie’s is a favorite for teachers in all curriculum areas!
My grandson is a rising 3rd grader, and his handwriting is awful. Teachers no longer emphasize penmanship in the classroom. However, they are quick to complain about his handwriting. I will use this summer 2016 to hone his writing skills. Thank you for making this kind of tablet. I can emphasize to him that most letters begin with a vertical line or end with a horizontal line. He can understand how to stretch out a letter by filling the small square. He can understand spacing between words. It is different from the Mead line tablets in that it gives you an understanding of vertical lines in letters. Hopefully, by the end of summer, his penmanship will be better!
“I used Channie’s handwriting pads in all curriculum areas, math, science, social studies, really all areas.. And I have seen tremendous growth. The parents have seen tremendous growth.”
“This is a fantastic resource for your classroom!!!
I had the privilege to be one of the first teachers to try this product in a classroom. As a kindergarten teacher I watched my students struggle with forming letters correctly and writing letters to large. This was the only tool that worked. Writing skills went from illegible to legible.
After teaching my class how to used the writing sheets. I put them in my writing center and the class looked forward to using them. After a month I had my children use regular writing paper to check their progress and more then half the class handwriting improved dramatically. I highly recommend this product.”
When a child first begins to learn how to read and write, there tends to be a good amount of confusion. This is, of course, to be expected. The English language is in no way one of the easiest languages to learn. One of the most common mistakes kids make when they are learning how to write is reversing the usage of the letters “b” and “d”. This can be chalked up to how similar these two letters look to one another. This error is something that is completely normal for children between the ages of 3 and 7 to make, but it is best if you can begin showing them how to correct this as early as possible.
In order to help your child when they are struggling with distinguishing between these two letters, it is beyond important that you show them proper letter formation. When forming a “b” start by drawing the line first, then proceed by going up and around. On the contrary, when forming a d, start with the curved half and draw the line last. If your child can recognize the different way each letter is formed, they are more likely to understand when to use each letter correctly.
If this continues to be an issue, there are other ways to correct your child. The easiest way to get them to remember which is which is by showing them that there is a lowercase “b” contained in an uppercase “B”. This normally resolves any remaining confusion.
If you child needs help practicing how to write D’s and B’s, purchase Channie’s handwriting worksheets today! They can not only make sure your kiddo can distinguish these two letters from one another but also ensure they know how to properly write the rest of the alphabet.
