Review of Mead Writing Fundamentals Products

1:01 AM

Home school has started at our house, and while I'm super busy with work, a new baby, and a new house (that needs so much work), I'm also a bit relieved.  We found an amazing resource that has helped me with teaching the younger kids -- Mead Writing Fundamentals Products!


These neat workbooks are so much different than your standard workbooks.  They feature various levels of reading and writing readiness, and they all use constructive, built-in tools to aid your child in their activities.
Our favorite one so far has been the Snip-It activity book.  Your child can cut up colored paper strips (included in the book), and then affix them to pages that have sticky shaped surfaces.  Just peel back the paper, and it works like a sticker.  No mess, and no fuss!

Here is a picture of my son (who is just 3) using the book.


Here is a picture of my older sons (5 and 6), with their pictures from the book.  It works for quite a few ages!


Other books in the series that we have tried include:

  • Write-On, Wipe Off Cursive Letters (This is a dry-erase white board book that even my 11-year-old can use to practice her cursive.)
  • Path Quest (This is a book that has four different "paths" your child can follow in the same book.  The answer to a question determines what they do on the next page.  It's very exciting for my 5-year-old!)
  • 4-in-1 Learn to Letter with Guidelines (This book is a standard handwriting book for printed letters.  The difference is in its indented letter outlines.  It helps kids stay on track with their lettering!)
There are many more books offered by Mead, and all of them are printed on sturdy paper.  They will last a long time in a home school or day care environment.  I love that the pages tear out so easily!

You can see the entire line of books at the Mead website!  They are available at Walmart, Target, and Staples stores for a very affordable $3.99 - 6.99 each.

  6. We love these products, and I can't say enough good things about them. We homeschool our oldest (8) and he has an assortment of special needs. He is currently using the Capital Letter Stories, and it is working wonderfully. He only gained the ability to write with a pencil over the past year, and this line of products is really helping him catch up!
