The shift to virtual classrooms may have changed the way students receive instruction, but what hasn’t changed is the foundational value of handwriting. Students who learn this lifelong skill in early grades can pivot to refining their communication abilities, honing their efficacy in literacy, cognition, and memory.
Learning Without Tears is here to help you seamlessly bridge the divide between school and home like never before. Join our national presenters, Keith Kline, OTR/L, and Roxanne Thompson, OTR, who share strategies for handwriting instruction that can be adapted to suit your classroom’s needs. Throughout this edWebinar, they provide you with tips for making school-to-home connections and empowering adult co-teachers along the path to student success.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-5 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
