Handing on Penmanship Skills
When we teach our children the art of handwriting, we give them real benefits that are foundational to their educational success. Handwriting fosters a higher capacity for learning, increases creativity, and enhances long-term memory. It also increases one's ability to focus and it combats dyslexia. It enables effective learning in reading, writing,
spelling, speech, and math. Additional known benefits of handwriting are: improving hand-eye coordination, enhancing fine motor skills, and refining impulse control. Handwriting practice is important throughout all grades, including high school.
