Develop fundamental prewriting skills in young children with the On the Road to Writing and Reading PreKindergarten Kit. The kit consists of developmentally appropriate materials that invite four- and five-year-olds to sing, play, pretend, and learn.

  • Gross motor skills
  • Fine motor skills
  • Spatial awareness
  • Print awareness
  • Letter recognition
  • Sound-symbol awareness
  • Handwriting skills
