My daughter recently started school and has struggled with her motor skills this has affected her ability to write. She has been so eager to use love writing products as they were delivered in a special bag which she enjoys packing her books into, it makes her feel very grown up :-). She can hold the pencils with ease and comfort and is very keen to make her marks on each page as they excite her with bright colours and pictures. She also gets to reward herself with a sticker at the end of each page, which works a treat. I have four children so used many learning materials and this is by far the best I’ve come across. I couldn’t recommend it enough. Thank you.
I have been using the Love Writing pencils with my Reception children this year, a large proportion of whom entered my class in September with weak hand muscles and poor pencil control and grip. The size of the pencils has meant that the children could hold and control them more more effectively than a longer pencil, which is often too heavy for their muscles to work with. The pencils are hard wearing and allow the children to add lots of pressure as they write, something which again is difficult with longer pencils. I have noticed a significant improvement in the vast majority of my children’s letter formation since we first started using the pencils. They apply pressure, hold the pencils and control them well. The children love the pencils and often ask if they can use them during their Child Initiated Learning time, referring to them as ‘our little pencils’. This fondness for them has promoted a love for writing as well as improved letter formation, what more could a teacher want?!
Hey, Following review from 3 year old Jack trying the pencils and writing book: "I gave the fantastic Love Writing Co pencils and workbook to my 3 year old nephew for his birthday and was delighted to see how well he got on with them. The pencils fit perfectly into his little hands and he really took to the colours and pictures in the book. He loves practicing his letters with Love Writing Co, I know he'll learn a lot from them! Keep doing what you're doing guys it's awesome!"
Love writing products are simply adored by my niece. At any chance to be creative she will pick up these pencils and craft a message in her newly learnt alphabet figures. As soon as my 4 year old niece got her hands on the books and pencils she was taken by the animations and colours. Writing made simple and letters she could draw in a simple and easy way. We couldn’t be happier.
