MATH AND VISUAL MOTOR SKILLS
Creating Line Designs: This
is a well-liked series of workbooks that incorporate using a pencil and ruler to connect
points on a page. In these books, a completed pattern is shown as an example for the
child to duplicate. Each book is progressively more difficult in design, with 20
designs per book. Students are motivated to master more difficult designs and
consequently to develop their visual perception and memory. We've also called them
"pre-drafting skill workbooks," as they are designed to get students to master
ruler and pencil skills. Teacher instructions and answer keys included.
$7.16-D, each book.

Designs in Math: In these reproducible books, students create geometric designs with a ruler by connecting the dots between a math problem and the correct answer. The activities reinforce the memorization of basic math facts, following directions, fine muscle control, visual-motor skills, and principles of design. Each book has 20 activities. A completed design can be used as a correction key or made into a transparency for classroom instruction. Each book is $7.16-D

Integrated Writing for grades K-12.
Following years of field research and development, Keith Beery and the Integrated Writing Team have created the most complete and beneficial writing program ever devised.
Integrated Writing (IW) is, on the one hand, a more effective, enjoyable, and inexpensive handwriting method. However, IW is much more than that. IW is the only K-12 writing method which enables teachers to fully integrate writing with reading, mathematics and any other subject desired in order to promote growth in all of these areas.
IW Handwriting Instruction
Handwriting is one of the most common sources of academic problems. Handwriting problems frequently cause students to avoid writing, thereby reducing their progress in other writing skills, as well as other subjects. IW Foundation exercises effectively teach skills for growth in other skills. Students at all grade levels benefit from periodic Foundations review.
IW Foundation exercises provide an integrated continuum of alphabets from which teachers can choose. Each alphabet was created on the basis of visual-motor integration principles and has been extensively field tested by teachers.
IW exercises also provide a continuum of writing line heights, to
prevent tight finger writing, ranging from 1 1/2 to 3/8 inches. Students practice
"tracking within outlines of letters, a highly effective visual-motor integration
technique. 64 reproducible pages per exercise book. $4.46-D each

Integrated Writing Professional Manual: Your K-12 Teammate in Teaching by Keith E. Beery and the Integrated Teaching Team, 2003, spiral bound. This is the book that puts the whole program together. It explains the Integrated Writing Program and how it works. To teach this program the teacher must (1) Do pre and post evaluations. (Test packets are available for each grade) (2) Choose an alphabet. (3) Teach the foundation skills (4) Integrate the instruction into other subjects. (This is done with the help of a computer font CD, also available, for Mac or Windows 3.0 and up. )
The rest of the Professional Manual is devoted to explaining each process of this program and at the end provides some teacher support material, including samples of alphabets, sample letters to parents, and a bibliography. BTH-1797. $8.96
Integrated Writing (IW)Test Professional Kit by Keith E. Beery. This kit contains a Professional Manual (Teacher's Manual for administering the test, not to be confused with the Integrated Writing Professional ), and a test packet for each grade level (2 &3, 4, 5 &6, 7-9, and 10-12). Test packets consist of 35 student test booklets and one classroom record form. In short, this kit has everything the teacher needs to do the pre and post evaluations for the Integrated Writing Program at all levels. Since this is really the weight of six books, postage is more than for one. . Priority mail would be $8.50. Media mail, which averages 1-2 weeks, but can take longer, is $5.00. (For United States shipping only.) BTH-1798. $44.96-D. This is a great value, since if contents were purchased separately, they would add up to $59.94
If you would like to the test booklet package for just one of the levels separately, they may be purchased for $8.99-D each. (See individual levels above.) Just contact me.
Integrated Writing Auto-Lined Fonts. These are used to integrate any subject with handwriting. Create any lesson (including math) and the outlined letters print out complete with writing line in the alphabet you selected. Students can then track inside the lessons you created, in addition to completing the lesson. All four alphabets and the readiness shapes are included on the CD. Please note: Adobe Type Manager is required for use in PC compatibles. The CD is licensed for use on one computer, and is compatible with both Macintosh and Windows 3.0 +. BTH-1800. $9.95* No longer available.

We're in the Pacific Time Zone
Our normal office hours when we answer the phone are 10: 30 AM - 4 PM Monday - Friday.
We answer email and ship at other times, but normally take Sundays off.
You can fax your purchase orders to 805-237-8639, but it's good to follow up with a phone call in a couple of days to make sure we got it, if you did not receive a delivery confirmation email. Please include an email address with your purchase order in case we have questions and so we can send your delivery confirmation number to you. You can also attach a signed purchase order to an email.
We prefer you ask your questions about products
and availability by
e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), since that gives us more time to prepare a thoughtful answer and
keeps us from playing phone tag. Please remember to put our email address in
your address book if you have a spam filter or you won't ever get your answer
unless you also leave a phone number. We cannot usually tell you immediately over the phone if a
book is here. We have to walk two blocks to check the warehouse, so I usually
have to call you back or email you anyway. We do check our e-mail frequently
throughout the day when we are at home. If we should be out, and you leave a
message on our answering machine, we sometimes cannot hear the phone number
clearly to return your call. Those are some reasons why we recommend you email
us first. If you want us to call you, please leave your phone number and time
When you do email us, please do not leave the subject blank or just say "Hi" or "Hello" as the subject. We delete those before opening because a lot of spam messages look like that.
