Mead Writing Fundamentals

mead.jpgLaurel has always possessed freakish focus when it comes to working with paper, and as a preschooler, she’s added writing and paper cutting to her crayon, paint, marker, and collage repertoire. We can never have enough activity books around, and currently are enjoying Mead’s Writing Fundamentals line. These activity books use multimodal cues (such as visual via color, and tactile via raised rulers) to enhance fine motor development (stage 1), letter formation (stage 2), primary writing (stage 3), and writing fluency (stage 4). Some of the directions are a tad overdone, but otherwise these books offer a fun, commercial character free means to introduce and develop writing skills. Laurel’s favorite is the Shape Builders learn to draw book; the results are so cute that we’re adding them to her already bulging art archives.
