Unit 2 – Handwriting Without Tears Guide
The Handwriting Without Tears (HWT) Guide for Unit 2 is available at the link below:
You’ll notice that the Unit Guides and HWT Sequence have both been updated for the new school year! The objective of Unit 2 is for your students to ….
- Implementing a daily routine that includes a HWT experience during Circle Time
- Implementing a daily routine that includes a HWT experience during Learning Centers
- Introducing wooden pieces and increasing children’s familiarity with same
As you’ll see in the Unit 2 Guide, teachers can determine which activities to offer each day, so long as the objectives listed above are met. Activities are arranged in a continuum, meaning that activity #1 should be implemented before #2 and so on, but once an activity has been introduced, it can and should be repeated often.
While you’re familiarizing yourself with Unit 2’s HWT Guide, please also refer to the HWT- 2015-2016 Sequence to give you a better idea of the developmental progress of this program as the year moves on.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Director for clarification!
