ez Write Unique Features

 

 

1. “Muscle Memory” 

        The teacher will know when the students have mastered this skill, because they will be able to write all the 8 Beginning

        Strokes from dictation. The ez Write formation instructions use these 8 strokes to teach the students how to form the

        different letters and numbers.  Reversing letters is a common problem with elementary students, but teaching to “Muscle

        Memory” helps eliminate reversals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. “Automaticity”

        Automaticity is the ability of students to retrieve and produce letters automatically.  The ez Write Program uses the

        “Alphabet Race” in grades 1-5 to help students increase their Letters Per Minute by writing the alphabet as

        quickly as they can.  When letter production is automatic, memory space is freed up for higher level composing skills and

        students are able to get their thoughts on paper quicker and often in more creative ways.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.   Alphabet Letters Taught in Groupings

        Instead of alphabetical order, letters are taught in groupings by the beginning stroke used to create them.  This helps   

        the students code the letters to memory, which is a prerequisite to learning to read. The students whisper the letter

        sound as they write the letters to reinforce this process.

 

 

4.  Strong Language Arts Connection

        High frequency words are used though out the program to produce a strong connection to reading.  Phonics, word families,

        rhyming, alliteration and sentence structure are all incorporated in the ez Write worksheets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.  Skill Application Worksheets

Worksheets all have an application of the skill taught on the backside of the worksheet. The first and second grade worksheets offer differentiated learning for different student ability levels and encourage creative writing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6..  Common Language and Materials Used Across Grade Levels and Schools

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7.  Multi-Sensory and Multi-Disciplinary Activities and a Strong Home/School Connection

        All four channels into the brain: seeing, saying, hearing and writing are used in the lessons to make ez Write effective.    

        Activities can take place in art, music and physical education to reinforce the strokes and create continuity throughout        

        the school.  ez Write also has a strong school/home connection built into the program.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8.   Continuous Stroke Formation

When students are taught how to form letters, they keep their pencils on the paper as much as possible to minimize repositioning.  This makes the transition to cursive smooth.

 

 

9.  8 Custom Fonts

The ez Write program was written using an outline font specifically designed to make handwriting easy, fun, and legible. There are 7 different fonts for teacher and classroom use. These fonts come on the Teacher Resource CD for school and home use.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10.  ez Write Training DVD, Intervention Guide and Grade Level Intervention Worksheets

Classroom teachers and volunteers are trained using the ez Write Training DVD, Handwriting Helper Guide, and learn to use the Handwriting Helper Worksheets to do quick interventions to help students correct handwriting errors.
