Make teaching cursive writing easier and more fun for you, and easier and more fun for your children to learn!
Developed by an elementary school teacher as a tool to more effectively teach handwriting skills.
With too many important things to be done, teaching handwriting often ended up on the bottom of the list.
Teaching Cursive Handwriting
Make teaching handwriting in the classroom or at home easier, and at the same time a lot more fun:
- Whole Class or Small Group Instruction: Set up a monitor in front of the class. The animated pencil will demonstrate proper letter formation over and over, allowing you to move around the classroom to focus on individual student progress.
- Independent instruction or extra practice at home or school: Print up a supply of Pencil Pete’s Worksheets and your child or students can work independently at computer stations. Now you can use computer time or learning center time to teach and practice handwriting too!
Teaching handwriting skills takes a lot of time and given everything else on the list of things to do, it can be difficult to spend the time that was once given to teaching this skill.
But learning to write is important. When children no longer need to concentrate on how to form each letter, they become free to more easily express themselves through written language. It’s a prerequisite skill to obtaining the higher standards set for language arts and written communication.
Making the difficult… fun!
Pencil Pete’s Cursive Writing Program encourages even reluctant learners to spend more time on task. It can also be helpful for special needs children with perceptual motor or spatial awareness difficulties.
