Why Learn Cursive Handwriting?

Learning cursive writing offers the following benefits:

  • Practice with repetition. Repetition helps to develop fine motor skills.
  • Hands-on experience. In an age of typing on phones and autocorrect, this fundamental skill helps to strengthen hand-eye coordination in a way that modern technology can't quite replace.
  • It requires attention to detail.
  • It's an art form. Cursive letters can be beautiful!
  • It gives instant feedback and an opportunity to improve with every turn of the wrist, leading to immediate gratification and a sense of accomplishment.
  • Students are able to read words from an era that would otherwise be lost to time.
