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.
For instance, while children are practicing writing a given letter, they can also be saying the sound the letter makes. In teaching cursive, explicitly teach connections between letters as well as formation of single letters. Unlike manuscript writing, cursive writing involves making connections between letters within a word. Once children can form individual letters, explicit teaching of letter connections is important.
When students have mastered the alphabet, they can move on to spelling games, root word games, and even work on learning better vocabulary and writing skills. Integrating language arts into online learning games is one of the best ways to find the key to student’s motivation.
