New Wave Handwriting

Improve reading fluency through great handwriting.

Give your pupils the practice they need to write legibly, fluently and quickly in order to succeed. By achieving mastery of handwriting through repeated practice, pupils can concentrate on developing their ideas rather than on their effort to write. New Wave Handwriting is a whole-school programme for Irish schools that will give you the support to plan and execute a successful handwriting strategy.

The series includes:

  • Pupil Books for Junior Infants to 4th Class that place a major emphasis on a variety of pattern practice to facilitate the pupil’s acquisition of each letter.
  • Teacher Guides to support the teaching of handwriting skills and the activities in the pupil books.
  • Teacher Resource Books for 5th to 6th Class full of photocopiable resources to enable teachers to teach and assess handwriting in the classroom. They also provide greater flexibility for older pupils and individual instruction where required.
