I've just discovered PointScribe Interactive Handwriting Software. After spending some time on their website, I wanted to be sure that you were aware of this brand new technology being used to teach kids to handwrite.
I think our district and students would greatly benefit from PointScribe. It is already being used in leading school districts across the country to teach the fundamentals of handwriting and build early literacy skills.
According to their website, our district can have PointScribe to use FREE for six months, no strings attached. I ask that you take a look at this so we can take advantage of this opportunity and our district can evaluate PointScribe first hand. I have included information from the PointScribe website about this "Pilot" program below. In addition, I am sending some other information that I found valuable.
Once you have visited the PointScribe website, please let me know what you think of the software and if you think this is a good fit for our schools. Either way, it does seem to make sense to at least give it a try for free.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
*FREE FOR 6 MONTHS: Your District can evaluate PointScribe for FREE for 6 months through our Pilot Program. Tell your Director of Curriculum to contact us for details. It's quick and simple to get started and there are no strings attached.
