Designed with a drawing panel to encourage storytelling and visual motor integration. Excellent choice to follow the “Practice Sheets: Upper Case and Lower Case”
  • Set of Four Handwriting Tree® Character Spatial-Marking Tiles: Bethany, Onslow Owl, and Griffin Groundhog (One each, Above and Below Ground) The whimsical Handwriting Tree® characters come to life on these 1½ inch circular educational tiles. In the initial exercise of learning letters, the tiles are placed alongside the Handwriting Tree spatial guide to demonstrate the starting point for the formation of each upper or lower case letter. The tiles can also be used in context of the letter exercises in the Upper Case Workbook to reinforce the starting points for these letters. Having the tiles present during each stage of learning provides a fun and engaging reminder of Handwriting Tree®’s system of spatial learning. Quantity: Set of four tiles
  • Handwriting Tree Spatial Device With Mounting Holes for Reverse Chalkboards The Handwriting Tree spatial guide is a colorful and fun way to help children learn where to start and stop forming both upper and lower case letters. The Handwriting Tree is home to Bethany Bluebird, Onslow Owl, and Griffin Groundhog. These fun and engaging characters help children identify where letters that start at the top or middle of their writing paper as well as identify where formation stops. The Handwriting Tree helps all students understand where to start and stop letter formation and is especially useful for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), who may have issues related to spatial relations and cues.

  • Lower Case Reverse Chalkboard With Mounting Pins for Handwriting Tree® Unlike all other chalkboards, the Handwriting Tree® reverse chalkboard allows children to write with dark-colored chalk on a light-colored surface. This surface, also contains Handwriting Tree®’s unique “green for go” and “red for stop” writing guidelines, along with the gray writing surface for “groundhogger” letters (lower case g, j, p, q, y), which is consistent with all other components of the program. This chalkboard trains letter formation for all lower case letters. Writing on a surface such as a chalkboard is well known to give input through the hand to help send proprioceptive signals between the hand and the child’s developing brain, thereby locking in learning of letter formation and helping to develop the cerebral cortex. This chalkboard meets the needs of all children, but in particular, has been specially designed to meet the needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), who may have a challenge transitioning from learning on a dark-colored chalkboard with white chalk to writing with a pencil on white paper. This unique, patented chalkboard fits easily into the Handwriting Tree spatial device to reinforce starting and stopping points for letter formation. Quantity: One

  • Set of 26 Laminated Upper Case Letter Formation Cards With Guides (Item#: LC001) Bethany BluebirdTM helps you learn to write upper case letters using these colorful, patented cards. Each card fits neatly into the Handwriting Tree® Upper Case Reverse Chalkboard or can be used separately by placing the card on a table or any surface. The 26, 3 X 5 inch, cards contain colorful spatial cues and arrow diagrams that help children learn the proper sequence to form each letter. These cards also contain Handwriting Tree®’s unique “green for go” and “red for stop” writing guidelines. The cards have been laminated to give a sturdy, waterproof surface. They can be used with a reversible glue dispenser (available on this website) along with the Handwriting Tree®’s 3/8” letter forming foam. Bending and placing this foam on the letter template gives students the opportunity to build pinch strength, learn letter shapes, and improve visual motor coupling.

  • Set of 26 Laminated Lower Case Letter Formation Cards With Guides (Item#: LC002) Product Description: Bethany BluebirdTM, Onslow OwlTM, and Griffin GroundhogTM help you learn to write lower case letters using these colorful, patented cards. Each card fits neatly into the Handwriting Tree® Lower Case Reverse Chalkboard or can be used separately by placing the card on a table or any surface. The 26, 3 X 7 inch, cards contain colorful spatial cues and arrow diagrams that help children learn the proper sequence to form each letter. These cards also contain Handwriting Tree®’s unique “green for go” and “red for stop” writing guidelines, along with the gray writing surface for “groundhogger” letters (lower case g, j, p, q, y), which is consistent with all other components of the program. The cards have been laminated to give a sturdy, water resistant surface. They can be used with a reversible glue dispenser (available on this website) along with the Handwriting Tree®’s 3/8” letter forming foam. Bending and placing this foam on the letter template gives students the opportunity to build pinch strength, learn letter shapes, and improve visual motor coupling. We found using the small foam is sometimes challenging due to the complexity of the lower case letters and have larger cards available for this (see item below). These cards however can be an invaluable teaching tool by allowing the student an opportunity to trace inside the tree using dry erase crayons, finger, wipe off markers, and the tape dispenser for added sensory input! Quantity: Set of 26 laminated cards Price: $19.95 per set
