Ready Writer Reviews

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 printed and cursive 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!

  1. Ready Writer Review by Marcy Carmack
    Pros: fun, easy to use
    Grades Used: preschool

    I started using Ready Writer with my preschooler (4 year old) this year. She loves it! The program has students practice different strokes that are key in handwriting without actually practicing the letters. It is a fun approach to handwriting with a cute little story that goes with each page to practice–the story of Farmer Brown and he does things like sharpen his saws (practicing up/down/diagonal strokes) and his wife cuts pans of brownies (practicing horizontal and vertical strokes). My 4 year old looks forward to each new story and loves going back to do the same ones over and over as well. I feel that her ability to write her letters has improved from doing this program. Best of all she doesn’t even realize that she’s practicing handwriting, she just sees it as fun!
