In any evident, budget cuts reduced funding for the program and it was cut after about 3 years of implementation. I didn't want to leave my teachers hanging. That summer, I pulled together a "Life After Great Beginnings" Power Point and "Resource Manual". Now I provide it to all my kindergarten and first grade staff. It's just a developmental approach to handwriting - with tons of strategies recommended by Handwriting Without Tears - based on fine motor and visual motor development.
After the "Handwriting Manual" was in place, I found that there was also many sensory strategies involved in the implementation of Great Beginnings. So, back to the computer I went, to put together a "Sensory Manual" with classroom strategies based on sensory needs.
I've attached both here. Feel free to use them as you see fit. Enjoy!
