Introducing Mat Man!
"Before children start writing, there are important concepts that need to be mastered to make writing easier for the children to learn.  These early concepts, or readiness skills, include size recognition, placement, and sequence skills. Handwriting Without Tears® and the Pre-k program Get Set for School™ use Mat Man to teach these skills and simultaneously promote body awareness, socializing, and sharing" (http://www.hwtears.com/hwtconnections/2011/august/matmanfeat).
