Product Details

Loops and Other Groups: A Kinesthetic Writing System uses movement patterns to teach cursive writing to students.

Benefits

  • Easy-to-remember motor and memory cues help students visualize and verbalize while experiencing the "feel" of the letter.
  • Imaginative approach makes learning fun.
  • Most students can learn formations of all lower-case letters in just six weeks.

  • Clock Climbers (a, d, g, q, c)
  • Kite Strings (i, u, w, t, j, p, r, s, o)
  • Loop Group (h, k, b, f, l, e)
  • Hills and Valleys (n, m, v, y, x, z)
  • Slim 7 Group (P, R, B, H, K)
  • Umbrella Tops and Eggs (C, E, A, O, Q)
  • High Hills and Deep Valleys (N, M, U, V, Y)
