Handwriting Patch Curriculum
Teach a child handwriting AND drawing using our handwriting curriculum.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.

      1. Okay, I found a solution for me. I don’t know if it will work for you… can you try this and get back to me? I noticed I was having issues with other days – when, normally I know they work… so -I think it may be a browser problem or a google issue. (The documents are in google drive). Anyway – I looked at this link:

        Then, I tried the clear browser cache solution:

        When I tried the “browsing incognito” as it suggested in the solution, the documents worked! So, I looked into clearing my browser history:

        (I use google chrome for a browser, so -I followed the directions in that link for how to clear the history for chrome…)

        Now, all of the documents work for me. Can you try to get them to work for you? Let me know if you have issues – happy to help you see them/use them. Thanks!

    Thanks Mrs. Karle! It worked. Who would have thought that a simple matter of deleting your browser history would prevent being able to print a document. Thank you so very much for getting back to me in a timely matter. Oh, and while I have your attention, I wanted to let you know that I am so very happy that I have found your site. My daughter (Oracle) just loves meeting with you everyday for her lesson. You are TRULY a treasure. Thank you for all that you do to help the little ones. Be Blessed!!

    1. So glad it worked! Actually, I am glad I could replicate the error… I was having the same problem! Thanks for getting back to me! Also, I am so happy to hear your daughter loves to learn to read. I love to teach her!
