Thinking About Cursive

I've read that schools may stop teaching handwriting!

Cursive takes more room and is less legible than printing.
But it is faster, has a personal style and is easier on the hand.

Thinking About Cursive



Handwriting

I feel handwriting is important for children to learn.

It's faster, easier on the hand and has a unique personal style.
The more we learn the better.
I find it can be relaxing if you write as slowly and as smoothly as you can.  It's just the opposite of  sending a text message with your two thumbs jerking back and forth as if having a seizure.  Abbreviating and using numbers for words ( "2" for two or too or to) is not as precise.  It substitutes speed for spelling and grammar.
