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. I was using your program with my son before Christmas and he was really enjoying it! We were on Day 25, but I’m not able to navigate back to where we were when we took a break for the holidays. Is there a way to get back to that day? Also, we had started using the Phonics Program too and he has enjoyed that part a lot too!

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful resource and experience!!!

    1. Hi there,
      Sorry for the confusion…Yeah,I started to try and make things easier for new people to follow, but I wondered if I would make it harder for people who may have started already… So, we have a few things that can help you, hopefully. (You can email me at [email protected]), too, if you are ever lost or have questions…-but the comments here work too!

      Anyway… We have a new app that you can follow: (If you have an android device) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.andromo.dev534193.app491518

      Also, Here is a list of everything… https://www.sightandsoundreading.com/learn-to-read-free-4/ (That will get you to sight word videos and phonics videos and word family videos… )
      Sight Word Video – https://www.sightandsoundreading.com/sight-word-reading-program-2/
      Phonics Videos: https://www.sightandsoundreading.com/phonics-reading-program-directory/
      Word Family Videos: https://www.sightandsoundreading.com/teaching-word-families-through-word-ladders/

      If you go to: https://www.sightandsoundreading.com/online-reading-program/ – you can sign up for an email that will come each day …it will start from the beginning of the program, though, so – the link above may be easier if you are in the middle of the program.

      So, I am still trying to figure out a way to streamline things better…. but, for now, hopefully this will get you where you need to go! Feel free to comment here, or email me ([email protected]) with question/concerns, etc! Actually, the app, if you have an android, is great because I think it does streamline things well… BUT, yeah, trying to figure out how to do that through the site still! 🙂 Thanks for your patience!

  2. Hello,
    I am just starting with your program, I received the email and was able to watch the video fine, but when I try to click to download the worksheet I am not able to, it takes me to a page with an error about the download link.

    1. I can help you! Where are you getting the error -if you can email me at [email protected] and let me know so that I can fix that for you (and others), that would be great…was it in your email? On the site? Anyway, I would love to know so I can fix a bad link. Other than that, I will email you the worksheet book for the program.

    Hello!

    I just started the youtube videos with my 7 year old son and he loves them! He really wants to write the words he is learning. I was wondering if you have handwriting worksheets that coorespond with the lessons?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi there,
      Yay! I am glad your son loves the videos. That is a great idea to have handwriting worksheets to help write out the words. Unfortunately I don’t have that, but I can send you just some plain handwriting sheets that you can use…. they won’t have the words on them, but you can add the words and he can write over your writing with a highlighter… (or, copy underneath). I’l send you an email now!

  6. I have an iPhone is it anyway possible that you guys have it on iPhone or is it just the Google store

    1. Hi Charmen, I think I wrote you an email already, but it is just available in the Google store right now…I need to figure out how to make an apple app…. Sorry!
