VERONA, WI March 31, 2016 – The Verona Public Library, in collaboration with Early Childhood staff from the Verona Area School District, have created 15 kits that parents can check out to help their 3-6+ year olds with handwriting skills. Handwriting without Tears is a curriculum used in all Verona pre-K and above classrooms to teach print and cursive handwriting. The library kits focus on the early skills that pre-K students learn.

The fifteen kits include different themes that focus on various skills. Examples of kits include: Mat Man Shapes Kit, Man Mat Opposites Kit, Frog Jump Capitals Kit, Starting Corner Capitals Kit, Numbers with Tag Bags Kit, and more.

“The Handwriting Without Tears Kits are an amazing resource to families in our community,” said Jennifer Skibba of the school district early childhood program. “This is a program that is unique to the Verona Area School District and we are honored to work alongside the Verona Library to offer parents the opportunity to use these tools and materials at home.”

The kits will be shelved in the parenting section of the library, and can be checked out for four weeks. Funding for the kits was provided by a generous donation from the Epic Systems Corporation.
