Learning to write is something we all need to do. Finding things that will help your children do well with their writing, whether manuscript or cursive is not always easy.
As a homeschooling mom, I remember dealing with trying to get enough practice in for my boys to write and keep their attention. The curriculum we had never seemed to have enough sheets for them to really do well. I often spent a lot of time making my own papers for them to practice on. It was time consuming and no fun at all.
StartWrite 6.0 has a solution for either a homeschool family, a school teacher, or just a parent who wants to help their children succeed in school.
Make writing fun:
Handwriting is an art and a physical skill that is essential to communication, even in our electronic age. But it requires practice, and just like grown-ups, kids get bored with busy work. Custom worksheets keep your students interested, with words and sentences they relate to. Now they will love to write (at least until they learn to send text messages).
Imagination is power:
Make your worksheets pop! Startwrite 6 includes easy to use yet robust design tools, so you can control colors and a variety of letter attributes. Add cute Border Art to highlight the word your students are learning. Insert Dotted Shapes so they can practice drawing squares, circles and triangles while they learn to write the words. Add Clip Art, Area Shading, Start Dots, and lots more. The only real problem we see with StartWrite Version 6 is that with all the new options and features you'll enjoy creating worksheets so much that you'll forget you're supposed to be making them for the kids. Meet the teacher's pet:
New features let you create the right challenges for each child. Letter Outlines and Decision Dots help children get started at a very early age. As they progress, help them practice each letter with Shaded Areas, Start Dots and color-coded Stroke Arrows. Create meaningful worksheets in a snap, saving hours of lesson prep time. ¡Buenas noticias!:
Startwrite 6.0 is bilingual. Spanish fonts make it easy for Spanish-speaking students to practice writing in their own language and English, and for English-speaking children to learn Spanish.
After playing around with the program on and off for several days I started getting the hang of it. The website has wonderful tutorial videos to help you really learn the program and all the neat options that are available. I really wish I had this when we were starting homeschooling!
Everything you need to know is available on their website to help you through downloading the program and using it from day one. Plus they offer ideas and suggestions to motivate you and that you can replicate on your own. This is something I can really recommend with no reservations! It's worth every penny!!
Te regular price for StratWrite 6.0 is $49.95. Right now it is on sale for $39.95!! It is well worth it too! You can purchase it HERE! To download the program there is no other fee. To order software CD's costs another $5 for shipping and handling.
