about our products
Students learn to write words by
first learning to write letters.
Students learn to write letters
by memorizing a sequence of motor movements. The Write-On
Handwriting program teaches children these motor movements
through our interlocking instructional tools: engaging paper-
and computer-based exercises. These tools are the foundation
of both our Powerful Printing and Conquering Cursive curricula.
Motor memory is the ability to store, retrieve and execute a memorized plan or pattern. In handwriting, the spatial components and sequential movements of each letter comprise this memorized plan. To write proficiently, students must be able to rapidly recall and produce the plan and pattern that underlies the construction of each letter.
In other words, students must possess the proper motor memory for each letter.
Powerful Printing™ App for iPad is a developmentally sound app supported by research and years of educational experience. The Write-On Handwriting app fully engages students through multi-sensory instruction of letter and number patterns. The design is age neutral, provides both instruction and practice modes, and is suitable for all learners. Finally – a multi-sensory handwriting app that makes learning to write fun! Take a look at our demo.
Powerful Printing and Conquering Cursive handwriting software utilize the computer to teach print and cursive handwriting with a multi-sensory approach that captures the attention of students and motivates them to learn to write. Visual and auditory prompts guide the writing of each letter of the alphabet and ensure that students write each letter correctly. These computer-based exercises are self-teaching tools - promoting the use of technology in the classroom. Take a look at our Powerful Printing Demo and Conquering Cursive Demo.
Powerful Printing and Conquering Cursive paper workbooks contain step-by-step activity pages that teach print and cursive handwriting, respectively. Letters are introduced in groups according to their initial pencil stroke. For example the "dive up and over" sequence is similar in the letters "r" and "n". By grouping letters of the same basic pattern, we reinforce important spatial and sequential themes, thus facilitating the acquisition of the necessary motor memory.
After each group of newly learned letters, students work through additional drills on review pages. More drills follow at the conclusion of the workbook on final review pages that cover all letters. This thorough approach eliminates the need for teacher-made practice worksheets.
