Comment: We have used for kg, 1st, and 2nd grade handwriting, and my boys love it! We had attempted a copy book method to handwriting from another curriculum and it was a complete fail. Handwriting Without Tears is so much easier to use.
Comment: Great book with easy, just enough new work for each lesson.

Comment: Easy to use and multi-sensory.
Comment: My daughter was pretty much able to teach herself cursive by using these books. I only checked and pointed out where she should "be more careful". She is comfortable using cursive over print now.
Comment: I've used multiple grades. My kids love it because they are able to do it on their own. The instructions are clear and the examples of each letter are easy to copy.
Comment: We used this curriculum for a couple of years. It is good curriculum that teaches kids handwriting well.
Comment: I have one student who is more challenged to follow step by step directions and I liked the format that HWT uses with catchy was of remembering the steps and picture connections. I do not like how the handwriting frame style changes throughout the book, that has confused my son a bit. But overall I am pleased with it.
Comment: We have used HWT PreK, K, 1st, 2nd, and now cursive with great success. The books and hands on activities are fun for the kids and once they learn the basics they can do it self-paced with ease. We had a bit of a hang up with my left-handed guy forming letters properly and the numbers "2" and "6" are taught in a very strange way, lol. They love the keyboarding without tears program as well!
