    Sara,

    Do you notice any difference with this Kindergartener when he is using a computer? Several students I have worked with seem to be more motivated and "open" when drafting on the computer. It also takes the physical stresses of handwriting off the table.

    FableVision puts out a great writing program for Elementary kids called Stationery Studio. The program contains hundreds of illustrations from Peter Reynolds, a children's book author and illustrator--and places lines in the middle of these pictures. You can even adjust the line style and width (so your kindergartener can use dashed lines), and the program provides developmentally appropriate fonts--and the traceable version of each.

    They have a web site about the program-- http://www.fablevision.com/stationerystudio .

    I hope this helps!
