Stylus Skills and
- 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!
