Write Out of the Box!® supports the development of fine motor skills and writing readiness of children 3-6 years old. Many children are entering Kindergarten with inadequate fine motor skills, poor pencil grasps, and unorthodox letter formation habits because they are writing before they are developmentally ready. Children who develop appropriate fine motor skills will be more likely to write efficiently and effectively in future years. Write Out of the Box!® workshops and products promote the use of simple, fun, and developmentally appropriate fine motor skill activities to foster efficient handwriting skills and avoid potential handwriting problems.
Handwriting difficulties are on the rise. Research indicates that fine motor skill awareness and implementation of strategies can lead to improved fine motor skill development of young students and therefore influence the acquisition of efficient handwriting skills. Appropriate fine motor skill development contributes to increased legibility of handwriting, rate of written production, test scores, and overall level of confidence at school.
