Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips ( Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading , Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch , and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch ). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read. Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch . With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles. The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading . Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.

Hi there, I think you were looking for some free resources on my site but were having some trouble. I updated my site and the free downloads disappeared. I fixed things now and I just entered your email so you should get the download. 1) Check Spam – sometimes things go there. 2) Subject is “Here is your free download” – there is a link inside. Sometimes that link is not hyperlinked…you may have to… 3) copy/paste the hyperlink for the download. It should open or download into your download folder 4) If you have trouble, write me at [email protected] (forward me the freebie email because I don’t know which freebie you wanted).
Thanks! Have fun! Meeghan

For a couple of years, our family used the Prescripts series for penmanship and drawing practice. However, as one of our children progressed from Book 1: Introduction to Cursive Writing & Tracing to Book 2: Writing Cursive Words and Practicing Drawing Skills , we encountered quite a setback. There was such a huge leap from one book to the next that it was nearly impossible for him to work in the second book!
While he could write his cursive letters separately, he immensely struggled with connecting those letters into words. After attempting a few pages, I knew we’d have to go back and bridge the gap. So… after conducting some research and testing it on multiple children, we recommend using this cursive handwriting workbook to use as a bridge between learning individual letters and connecting those letters into words. This method has not only helped our boys to successfully connect letters into simple words, but many other families have shared with us how helpful this resource has been! I thought I’d share it here in case anyone else ends up with the same situation.
For students who have not yet been introduced to handwriting, check out the Script-n-Scribe Roller Coaster Writer . Because we wanted to seamlessly integrate picture study and poetry into our school days while reinforcing grammar concepts, we also offer the Script-n-Scribe Poetry & Picture Study Series . Our boys worked alongside me to develop the entire Script-n-Scribe Cursive Program .

Handwriting worksheets at PrintNPractice This site offers a massive selection of handwriting and copywork sheets. They also offer math practice sheets, English grammar and diagramming sheets, and spelling sheets/lists. For Pre-K or Kindergarten students learning how to print, the following sheets are some of our favorites and are the ones in our Preschoolers Notebook : Alphabet worksheets at PrintNPractice Number worksheets at PrintNPractice
For other notebooking resources, click here .
To build your own notebooking pages with Microsoft Office, MAC Pages, or another word-processing program, download your preferred font(s) from Fontspace (includes American Sign Language, crosswords, and musical notation) or DAFont . The fonts from these two websites are free downloads, and I have (thus far) had no difficulty in downloading from these sites. (No pop-ups, malware, spyware, etc.)
After downloading the font, you will need to find the Fonts folder on your computer by doing a search using MAC Finder or Windows Explorer and then copying the font file (with extension .ttf) into that folder. For those fonts which do not offer a dashed or dotted option, you can hollow the letters by formatting the font within the word-processing software (select the “outline” option).
Finally, clipart can be downloaded from my favorite educational clipart site, ClipArt ETC from Florida Center for Instructional Technology .
