Grade 1 (6-7 yrs)

Our fine motor and handwriting resources ensure you can help your Grade 1 (6-7 yrs) in this critical year for developing handwriting skills.

This is the year where the life-skill of handwriting is established for life. Because handwriting is difficult to change once poor habits have been established, it is essential your child learns the right way the first time®. Our resources for our Grade 1 (6-7 yrs) child will help you to walk alongside them through the handwriting acquisition process, knowing you are doing it the right way.

You won’t need to waste time looking on the internet and trying to figure it out, it is all there for you. When we teach our children to do something, we think about how we do it. We don’t know what the best practices are when it comes to teaching handwriting. And if things start to go wrong, it can be hard to know how to get it back on track.

Our Grade 1 (6-7 yrs) handwriting resources are based on multisensory principles. The more information we can give the brain on how to form a letter, the better it will be able to remember it.

By using the additional sensory input through the auditory, visual, tactile, and proprioceptive systems, we can give the brain the information it needs. Using this information, along with your child practising in the correct formation patterns, we can help to establish good handwriting patterns for life.

Handwriting needs the fine motor foundations of good control over the pencil. Our fine motor resources aimed at the Grade 1 (6-7 yrs) child will enable your child to develop the exact muscles and movement patterns they need for good pencil control for handwriting.

There are a range of resources for each budget so you can get the most suitable fine motor and handwriting resources for your Grade 1 (6-7 yrs) child.
