WOW: A letter of recommendation


Letter Layers received this letter recently - For those of you without a magnifying glass :-) it says...
Dear John,
Many thanks for sending the cd on approval. WOW! My son loves it and I can honestly say within him doing the first two letters there was a huge improvement in his confidence and attitude. To visually see those lead in and out strokes has helped him to understand that joined up handwriting is not as hard as it seemed. I can actually see him thinking of where to start and where to join-the concentration is much improved. Once we got over the hurdle of "we don't do this one like this at school" referring to the loop letters. I managed to persuade him to have a try and reassured him that it was ok and that the flow was better. He was in agreement and we have decided to go with your style. A heart felt thank you to you and your wife for producing this wonderful resource. It truly has helped my son - he loves it and says it is great fun! Sincere regards...
We are so chuffed with this. More evidence that handwriting is a key skill for children to develop and they can develop it in a fun way!Letter Layers works and we are looking forward to telling more people about it! Do get in touch if you want more info enquiries@letterlayers.co.uk we can send copies out for sale or return - have a go, see what you think!

Great game to get kids writing #3

video

Hello it's me again Magic - I'm really excited because today the Coen family ( the people who have made this game for me) are letting me loose! You can join me to learn a really important movement to help you with your handwriting. Play the film above and learn the "up and over" movement. You use this movement for lots of letters. You can practice your up and over movement anywhere! On a piece of paper, in the sandpit, in the mud :-) on your mummy and daddy's backs ( get them to do it on your back too!). I hope you have fun with this game. Let me know what you think!

The next game is for children at Level 3 who are starting to hear sounds at the beginning and end of words and are becoming more confident at linking letters to the sounds they make but can not write them.

The next game is for children at Level 1 again. It's called My sandwich sounds! Do you like sandwiches? What sort of sandwich would a queen eat? Have a think and we'll see you soon!
