This class introduces the concept of lined paper, although the emphasis of the class is correct letter formation and grasp development through fun, exploratory multi-sensory activities. Class continues to work on fine motor readiness for Kindergarten through grasp and fine motor labs. 4-5 children per class Students will work on letter formation through large motor (ex. in our gym on giant handwriting lines), medium motor (ex. with fizzing paint/Q-tip on 4 inch handwriting lines, and small motor (workbook and handwriting paper). We have a gym where students will work on visual memory and letter recognition skills in fun games. For example, they can write the letters of the day in the air, and then jump into our foam pillows from a platform. There is always a zany writing topic, for example, a shaving cream puff monster. Students will then write either the letter of the day or practice writing words about the craft. We have the COOLEST projects.. Parent training at the end of every class, to go over homework and set a home program for working on sequencing of letters.

WHAM Class Semesters Offered: Fall/Spring/Summer
WHAM Class - Writing, Handwriting and Math Legibility - (PRINT) for older kids - 2nd through 4th, 5th - 7th, and teens. Work on print legibility techniques for sizing of letters on notebook paper, and for handwriting error recognition. Many students 2nd grade and above, develop impulsive handwriting, and have a "need for speed" handwriting to get their schoolwork done. With the need for speed handwriting, many students decrease legibility. Many other students just do not know the techniques for how to place writing within the lines on regular notebook paper. We use the One Hour to Legibility Program, to teach quick legibility techniques, and add in FUN, multi-sensory learning activities such as writing with exploding paint, to practice techniques. Students will also work on math and numbers legibility, cool writing projects on training notebook paper, generalization skills to notebook paper and fill in the blank worksheets/assignment logs, etc. Students will do a zany writing topic most sessions, to practice generalization of skills taught within a lesson. Zany writing topics are fun science type activities - students may write the ingredients down, or a paragraph about what happened. Examples of zany topics might be, shaving cream puff monsters, alien eyeballs, or flubber slime. If your child has a funky grasp on a pencil, please also register for a grasp class (see Grasp class description).

Writing Literacy Classes I and II Semesters Offered: Fall/Spring/Summer
Writing Literacy Classes I and II - Each class will explore different skills towards writing. Many of our students handwriting is so illegible prior to coming to the clinic, that once their handwriting is improved, it is apparent that they still have trouble with grammar, spelling, composition, and punctuation. Using fun themes, our teacher will reteach basic grammar, punctuation, capitalization rules, and help students learn tricks or compensation skills for spelling. Students also learn to write creatively, with longer sentence structure. A FUN way to work towards preparing for TAKS writing! Session I is a pirate theme. Pirates are glamorized in the movies, but what was it like to be a pirate. Write â??how toâ??sâ?? and persuasive essays! Session II is The Hero Within Yourself! Explore qualities about cartoon heroes, heroes in literature, and find the hero within yourself when realizing how fun writing can be. Take Class A or B or both!

SESSION A: PIRATES!!! SESSION B: HEROES!!!
