Handwriting is more than placing a pen on a piece of paper
- It captures imaginations
- It records our thoughts
- It helps children learn
A child’s thoughts are unique and so is their handwriting
It can be powerful too. It has the power to create an emotional connection with the reader.
Handwriting is needed to help children learn
The physical act of moving the hand to form letters has been scientifically proven to help both reading and writing skills. This same movement does not happen when a child types on a keyboard. Modern technology is not helping to develop cognitive learners. It does not help children to develop creative literacy skills.
