Summer handwriting without tears
Research supports the active teaching of handwriting.
Recent findings demonstrate that writing by hand improves creative writing skills and fine motor skills. In fact, elementary students have been found to write more and faster by hand than when keyboarding. It’s our mission to help maintain and teach the necessity of handwriting in a technological world. While we embrace technology in our classroom, we know this essential skill is crucial for the next generation’s growth and success.
