How Handwriting Without Tears ® Aligns to the Science of Reading
Handwriting is one of the foundational skills that leads students toward automatic word recognition. It falls in the bottom, skills portion of Scarborough’s rope. As students form letters, they are solidifying the alphabetic principle. They need to be able to retrieve the symbol for the sound automatically, so as students practice in Handwriting Without Tears (HWT), they are learning to transfer that knowledge.

Narrative: Write a story in order with details and an ending
Information: Write topic sentences, facts about their topic, and an ending
Opinion: Write an introduction that states their opinion, reasons that support their opinion, and a conclusion
These workbooks from Learning without Tears , are created to give children structured practice in core writing skills. Each workbook focuses on three writing types: narrative, information and opinion. Each workbook's content is developmentally appropriate and scaffolded to progressively move students toward stronger understanding and greater independence in writing. Each workbook also contains templates at the end of each section for further practice. Workbooks include a brief overview of the course and each of the writing topics are introduced and taught. See the publisher's web site for a teacher's guide to use these in a classroom. See leveled books for more information on content and style. 86 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne
