First off seperate the act of writing with reading. Many programs combine the two and frustrate the child. Writting ussually lags behind reading.

Handwriting without tears (HWOT) teacher manual has a lot of good information on developing good pencil holds "writing habits". As for buying the rest that is up to you. You can make your own sheets. Especially if your dd likes to draw.

As for reading "Sing Spell Read" it is suppose to be a good program. But you can do it cheaper and much simpler with Phonics Pathway by Dolorees Hiske.

You can improvise to fit your child easier with Phonics Pathway. You can use the book more to guide you. As for readers you can use Bob books or check your local library.
