It is interesting to ponder the long-term effects of computers and keyboarding on the skill of handwriting... How much is it taught??? Have we always had some students and adults with impeccable cursive and printing and others barely readable like doctor's prescriptions...
Before the silicon chip and digital transistor switching came along... "digital" meant using fingers as in "hands-on" ... I for one hope there is still room for that in our busy curricula.
- From the web page:
- Learning to write numbers and letters are important tasks for children. It should be an exciting and enjoyable activity through which children can experience success.
- Each lesson is featured on its own page, and kids are shown in simple steps how to write the numbers, letters, and sentences. Kids can trace uppercase and lowercase letters, and even blank sheets are provided for kids to practice more before their next lessons!
- All kids can improve their writing skills with lots of practice. If your kids are having difficulties, you can reprint any of these lessons or practice sheets until they're ready to move forward to the next lesson. The practice sheets are useful for parents or teachers to create their own letters, words, and sentences. We welcome you to share your ideas and suggestions for future lessons, whether it's basic words, sentences, or games!
