Handwriting remains a critical skill in the classroom. In order for children to be successful readers, writers, and ultimately, communicators—they need a strong foundation.
Although word-processing programs and assistive technology are undeniably boons to children with writing problems, technological advances do not eliminate the need for explicit teaching of handwriting. Furthermore, very modest amounts of instructional time in the earliest grades – kindergarten and grade one – may help to prevent later writing difficulties for many children.
Teach similarly formed letters together, and use an instructional sequence that takes into account both ease of formation and frequency in words.
