I have used Handwriting without Tears for about four years, but I teach first and second grade. The order the letters are introduced in focus on common letter strokes. We just finished our capital letter review, and today was our first lowercase letter introduction. I introduced the c (magic c in HWT) and the o which both begin with the magic c curve. On Monday, we will introduce the lowercase s which begins the same way.

I don't think you should adjust your phonics program to match the HWT because I am sure that those sounds are taught in a developmental sequence as well.

I second what kiki056 said that you can use both programs even though they focus on different letters.
