Happy Camper Handwriting Camp Monday, July 18

Happy Camper Handwriting Camp

Handwriting Enrichment Summer Camp – using a multi-sensory approach to reinforce foundational handwriting skills in a fun way!

This class will be geared towards children who have finished Kindergarten and are entering 1st grade yet continue to struggle with letter formation.

Activities will include fun ways to reinforce upper and lower case letter formation, orientation, size, spacing and placement. We will use natural materials and multi sensory activities to reinforce handwriting skills, along with plenty of movement breaks. Skilled handwriting has been shown to improve skills in all areas of academics.

For Ages 5-6 (typically those entering 1st grade struggling with letter formation or who need reinforcement) If you have questions as to whether or not this class is for your child, please reach out!  kay@otplayconnections.com

Camp will run on Monday, July 18 – Friday, July 22, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Add Lunch Bunch for the week for $20!
