I have the Printing Teacher's Guide, the Cursive Teacher's Guide, and the Overview of the Program Teacher's Guide available.

   We tried to use that program in our special ed class, but the kids just ended up putting the wooden pieces in their mouths.  One hung them on his ears, after we stopped laughing we decided it was a good program but just not for our guys!  We gave it to the regular ed 2nd grade teacher who used it to much success.  Hopefully you will find a home for yours!

I already have these items, but I just wanted to put it out there what a great program this is!  I use the PK level, and I love it!

Also a vote for how great these are!  It's a handwriting program developed by an OT after all the referrals for fine motor she got that were only about handwriting.

You can do the program w/out the wooden pieces and I still recommend it for sped.  I work in sped and recommend it for a variety of level kids.
