This 5 week session will review UPPER CASE letter formation and also support those foundational hand skills needed to use a pencil.  Hand strength, in-hand manipulation, tactile discrimination, and kinesthetic awareness are a few of the important skills required to use a pencil to write successfully.   The camp sessions will focus on fine motor development and using a multi-sensory approach to learning capital letters.  Capital letters are instructed first as the letter strokes are developmentally easier to learn.  The Handwriting Without Tears curriculum will be used to guide the camp along with a multi-sensory approach to learning letters.   Multi-sensory means using the whole body and its senses to learn the correct letter formations.  This is such a fun way to learn to write!   Learning the correct way to form letters leads to more efficient and successful writers!  This would be a wonderful way to provided added instruction and practice to support the lifelong skill of writing!  Research shows that skilled handwriting improves skills in all areas of academics.  This camp is open to any child.  It would be helpful if the child could identify capital letter names.  As an Occupational Therapist, I have expert knowledge on the underlying hand and finger development that is needed to use a pencil in support of learning to write.  I can also tune in to what may happening for child that is struggling in this area of development and provide feedback.   This camp is open to any child!

This will be a small group format with no more than 6 campers, so please register early to guarantee a spot!
