Marvin’s Marvellous Mountain® is a complete programme methodology
It is proven to teach formation of all 26 cursive script letters by the end of Early Years Foundation Stage through a uniquely captivating, storytelling adventure.
Invite your class into Marvin’s world,
An immersive adventure story that allows them to learn their cursive letters almost as an enjoyable afterthought.
At Marvin’s Cursive Letters we have one main aim – ‘to let children enjoy learning their cursive letters whilst the teachers find it easy to teach them’
And judging by the continued feedback from teachers, pupils, parents, head teachers and governors alike it seems we are really succeeding.
Developed by a teacher at the thick of ‘the chalk face’, all the hard work of lesson preparation has now vanished and every teacher can enjoy the fun and ease with which the children learn their cursive letters.
Marvin the monkey is the star of the show and the children are captivated by him. They love showing him their letter formation and getting their praise in return. Through his adventure story the children become engrossed in his Marvellous Mountain journey and all the characters he meets on his way.
The programme has been designed with the delight of the children in mind and you’ve never seen such eagerness for a class in anticipation of a writing lesson!
All the tools are supplied to you in one complete programme consisting of Marvin himself, a colourful Flashcard Presenter with the illustrated character letters, a comprehensive Tutor’s Manual outlining everything you need to know about the programme, a Quick Start online tutorial to give you the overview of how to start teaching the programme quickly and you also get the comprehensive online tutorials so you can watch videos for effective teaching of this innovative programme.
The Tutor’s Handbook not only has all the rhymes and ditties which help the children to memorise correct letter formation but we’ve also added in Teacher Tips and Teaching Opportunities with suggestions for how to expand each letter’s theme into other areas of the Foundation curriculum to achieve their Early Learning Goals.
So, we’ve made it easy for you, huge fun for the children and with proven measurable results that will sway even the most ardent doubters as to the ability of Reception pupils to excel at cursive script letters.
