50% OFF Zaner-Bloser DEAL!

Who doesn't love a great sale to ring in the New Year?!  You might have read my post about the Zaner-Bloser Handwriting program from December (http://jensotforkids.blogspot.com/2011/12/zaner-bloser-handwriting.html ) where I wrote that I had learned about some helpful additions to their curriculum including music, manipulatives, and online resources.  Well, a very nice representative from Zaner-Bloser happened to see the post and has offered an exclusive sale offer for readers of 'Jen's OT For Kids'!! 

Follow the link to the Zaner-Bloser Handwriting at http://www.zaner-bloser.com/zaner-bloser-handwriting/zaner-bloser-handwriting-overview where you'll see a link about ZB Fonts Online.   This feature allows you to make your own worksheets to be consistent with the Zaner-Bloser books you might be using in the classroom.  There is a free version with limited features or a premium version, ZB Fonts Online Plus, that provides more options and allows you to save and edit worksheets you create. The regular price of the premium version is $30.99/year HOWEVER you can now get ZB Fonts Online Plus for $14.99 if you enter the code ZBFOP.  This offer will be valid through December 31, 2012!

I've found that it's helpful for students to have CONSISTENCY when learning and practicing handwriting.  If you are currently using the ZB curriculum, I do encourage you to take a peek and see if you can find something to enhance your lessons.  If your school does not have a handwriting curriculum, please take some time to look over various books such as ZB and Handwriting Without Tears to see which might be a good fit for your students.  A mere 5 minutes a day of direct instruction DOES make a difference for teaching and reinforcing good writing habits. 

Happy New Year and Happy Writing!
