Barchowsky Fluent Handwriting

Because I tend to be a perfectionist when it comes to anything to do with schoolwork or paperwork, handwriting is something that is very important to me.  Neither of my girls have what I would consider to be nice handwriting, so I was anxious to receive some products from Barchowsky Fluent Handwriting, and set to work trying to improve their writing skills.

When I received my package, I was immediately impressed by the beautiful handwriting on the package!  Would it be possible for my children to learn to write this neatly?!  One can only hope!

Here are some of the variety of products offered by Barchowsky:

Beginners' Handwriting

Beginners’ Handwriting develops gross motor skills. It introduces children to the rhythmic movement they need for a lifetime of easy, legible handwriting.

Twenty-eight, reusable, large sheets (11 x 17 inches, or 28 x 43 centimeters) come with a Teacher’s Guide. Place the sheets on an easel for maximum eye-hand coordination, or tack them to a wall. Trace and copy patterns and letters. Most sheets have simple, warmup patterns to assist lowercase letter formation. Two sheets introduce capital formations.

Let children love to learn with the pre-writing activities in the Teacher’s Guide. And yes, there are ample suggestions for using each sheet, and for teaching both right and left-handers.

BFH Fluent Handwriting Manual

BFH gives you a complete instructional package for all ages. The manual is for reference. It has all the essential information to learn and teach the BFH method. The CD-ROM has additional help, and exemplars for lessons.

Fix It...Write

FIX IT…WRITE is for the older student or adult who needs help with legibility and/or speed.

The format is hole-punched, loose-leaf sheets with instructions, lessons and lined sheets for practice. Users are encouraged to put the sheets in a ring binder; then add all practice to that binder. Date each practice page. After a couple of weeks, review your work. You will be amazed at your progress, and motivated to continue.

Fix It…Write is in two sections. The first is for students who primarily use print-script, and need to make letters flow with legibility and speed. The other is for students who prefer conventional cursive, and have the same need for improved handwriting.

If you are looking for a beginner’s handwriting course, or would like to see improvement in your child’s handwriting (or even your OWN), I’d recommend checking out Barchowsky Fluent Handwriting. Seven of our Crew members received products from Barchowsky, and will be sharing their reviews with you here:
