Handwriting Without Tears®
As of 2015, the Morris Plains Co-op has included Handwriting Without Tears®, a nationally recognized program in helping children learn, into their Pre-K curriculum. The Handwriting Without Tears® Pre-K curriculum was developed
almost 10 years ago in response to requests for hands-on teaching materials and strategies that would make learning fun and easy for students. It uses a developmental approach that is based on the most relevant research about how young children learn best:
  • Break difficult concepts into simple tasks
  • Believe that every child can achieve
  • Use really cool materials that make children want to learn
This curriculum accommodates both teacher-directed and student-initiated playful learning, because we know that sparking the imagination leads to a lifelong love of learning. It helps the students develop both fine and gross motor skills before they can master such skills as writing. The program also provides an integrated approach to language and literacy to make learning meaningful and engaging.
