Handwriting Without Tears™

We believe in the power of the written word at School for Amazing Kids. That’s why we’ve implemented the handwriting program that is used by millions of students all over the world: Handwriting Without Tears. This easy-to-teach, easy-to-learn curriculum makes handwriting mastery joyful for students and their teachers.

Research supports the active teaching of handwriting. Recent findings demonstrate that writing by hand improves creative writing skills and fine motor skills. In fact, elementary students have been found to write more and faster by hand than when keyboarding.
