Curiously Cursive

This week we have introduced the children to cursive handwriting. We began with the letters a, e, c and o. The children had great fun using different media such as chalks, felt tips, sand, crayons and shaving foam.  The cursive style only requires 3 movements: under curve, over curve and up and down. We are hoping that the cursive style will help to improve the children’s presentation and spelling since hand movements create some muscle memory that retains the spelling patterns.
