ReadyWriter Features
Beautiful, graphic-based exer­cises add fun, put stylus skills into an artistic context!
Brief, fun story for each exercise adds interest, tells how to complete the page!
Bible verses relate to pen­manship and writing!
Achievement Certificates ecourage student progress!

Page after page of static letters to draw can quickly become a bore—as youngsters soon learn! That’s why the pictorial approach of ReadyWriter is so delightful. With ReadyWriter®, as your kids begin to practice complete letters, the characters will likely flow easily, without that legendary tedium and struggle, and without that ragged, jagged appearance which so often plagues the penmanship of young students. That’s because ReadyWriter teaches more than penmanship—it teaches stylus skills!

ReadyWriter starts with exercises that drill your students in the six fundamental stylus strokes from which letters and numerals are formed. What’s so neat, though, is that your 4 - 8 year-olds don’t know they’re practicing “fundamental stylus strokes”—they’re having fun filling-in missing parts of pictures!

How it works... 

Each beautiful ReadyWriter exercise portrays a scene from Farmer Brown’s farm, with a brief, fun story from the CalcuPak 1 SmartGuide™ to set the context. While your children complete various visual elements in the pictures, they get lots of practice in stylus skills and forming complete printed characters—more than in many beginning penmanship workbooks, with more enjoyment as well!

Although ReadyWriter focuses primarily on printed penmanship, several of its exercises carry over nicely into cursive skills. So even students in the higher grades often benefit from doing ReadyWriter!

ReadyWriter comes as a free bonus unit in CalcuPak 1, so you can print out its pages and Achievement Certificates for your kids.

“LOVE ReadyWriter!!! Have used it when each of my children turns four. Great!!”—Mrs. Cindy T.  PA

ReadyWriter:
Stylus Skills and
Beginning Penmanship
- Ages 4 thru 8 -

Each beautiful ReadyWriter® exercise portrays a scene from Farmer Brown’s farm, with a fun story from the Instructor’s Guide to set the context. ReadyWriter starts with exer­cises that drill your students in the six fundamental stylus strokes from which printed and cursive letters and numerals are formed. But your kids don’t know they’re practicing “fundamental stylus strokes”— they’re having fun filling-in missing parts of pictures! In later exercises, as your kids practice complete letters, the characters will likely flow easily, without the 'jaggies' which so often plague the penmanship of young students.

Here's a sample ReadyWriter story . . . Level 1: Brownies
    Mrs. Brown has just fixed a big batch of the Brown family’s favorite dessert—brownies (naturally)! They’ve cooled off a bit, so now let’s help her cut them. Start at the top of the page, and with your pencil ‘cut’ one panful at a time, from top to bottom and then from left to right. Try to make nice square brown­ies of the same size, and try not to cut into the middle shaded area of the brownies. It might be good to have some real brownies sometime, too!
