The Case for Cursive

Do you teach cursive handwriting in your homeschool?  Along with teaching typing proficiency, homeschool parents should also recognize the importance of learning proper handwriting skills.  Many people say that teaching and learning to write in cursive is no longer important for today’s children.  Some people disagree with that notion.

For instance, if your child doesn’t know how to write in cursive, they likely will not know how to read words written in cursive.  There’s an easy way to include cursive handwriting into your daily school schedule.  By assigning your children their spelling words to be written in cursive, they will not only be practicing their handwriting, but their spelling words as well.  Try out some cursive handwriting worksheets for your homeschooler this year!
