I grew up, as did most parents, in an age when handwriting was more important in schools. But now, with so much emphasis on computer, penmanship is barely touched on. Typing has replaced pen/pencil writing. As an educator, I'm not convinced perfect penmanship is vital. But basic legible writing is. Workplaces still rely on a lot of handwritten messages.
Parents, do you bemoan your kid's unreadable writing? How about links for free printable handwriting practice worksheets he can practice at home? Print manuscript, print and cursive practice pages. Use for spelling, phonics and reading too. Free Printable Manuscript and Cursive Handwriting Practice Pages and Penmanship Lesson Plans
