The movement of the hand stimulates the muscles involved in writing as well as the process of thinking. Handwriting, especially with Cursive, structures thought and creativity in a way keyboard and tablet typing can't. The successive construction of letters and words is more fluid and allows children to remember words and bridge ideas. It is a proven fact that Cursive writing improves cognition. In this class, we will review the basics of Print writing and explore the beauty and importance of Cursive handwriting. The goal is to build confidence while improving each student's hand-eye coordination, hand muscle building and, most importantly, allow them to construct words, phrases and sentences with beautiful penmanship.
