I was curious when I had the chance to review the Steps4kids handwriting DVD. Abby's been trying to write words. It's funny, cause she will sit at her desk and do her homework together with Lisa and Jamie. Now keep in mind these are all scribbles, no real letters are on the paper, but she's writing full pages :-)
Steps4Kids to Write Their ABCs is a multiple award winning dvd that teaches how to write both upper and lowercase letters in traditional print. Selected as the "DVD of the YEAR" by Creative Child Magazine and as one of the "Best 10 Children's Audio Visual Products" by child development expert Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D, this dvd offers tips on how to: hold a pencil correctly, support left handed writers, and avoid letter reversals. This child friendly dvd also shows how to draw using select letters to make writing practice fun. Used in schools and homes throughout the USA to support students. (All products are made in the USA and comply with material safety requirements).
The Steps4Kids write their ABC's handwriting DVD teaches letters in sequences that share similar letter strokes to help your child learn quickly. To make learning fun, drawing breaks are mixed in throughout the DVD to reinforce letter strokes and help learn to draw basic shapes.
Now mind you, Abby is only 3 and I thought too young to give this DVD a try. She sat through the whole DVD and after it was finished didn't want to write. She just wanted to watch TV.
The next day Lisa comes home and starts her homework, so Abby joins her and ..... writes a capital A! I tell you, we've never showed her, so she got this from the DVD. A's the only one that stuck but I'm sure the older she gets the more she'll get interested to write her name.
I'm actually thinking of showing this DVD to my son too, he's 9 and has terrible handwriting and could definitely use some help in this field!
