When my children were young and learning to write, I bought tons of workbooks filled with letters, numbers, lines, and shapes all created with dashed lines meant to be traced. I downloaded printables with themes to go along with the time of year or closest holiday with similar traceable designs. I shudder to think how many trees had to die in order for my children’s handwriting practice.
Boogie Board e-Writers
Our family has been a big fan of Boogie Board e-Writers since they first came out. These portable e-writers allow you to write on a screen with a stylus and then erase with the press of a button. They are great for taking notes, making lists, leaving messages, doing math, and handwriting practice.
As proof that my timing is always off, now that my kids have learned handwriting, Boogie Board just came out with a great new e-writer that is perfect for early writers. The Boogie Board Jot 4.5 Clear View takes what is great about the original Boogie Boards and adds a new element. Our friends at Boogie Board sent me a Jot 4.5 to review and share my thoughts about it with you.
Boogie Boards For Handwriting Practice
The size of the Boogie Board Jot 4.5 e-writer is a win, also. It is basically hand-held and small enough to easily fit in your purse or backpack. This makes it a great portable option to take learning on the road or to pack for road trip entertainment.
