Daisypath Anniversary Years Ticker

Thursday, September 8, 2011


It seems like with the age of keyboards handwriting doesn't seem necessary. But like scissor cutting, it helps coordinate/organize the brain, and helps with overall small muscle development. Because it is a much more physical way to get information on paper, that information is more readily/easily stored and recalled.

Also not always, but I have found messy handwriting can be a discipline issue in other areas as well. Sloppy work, messy rooms, not focusing on task at hand, rushing to get done, chores not done completely or properly, you get the picture.

Another note of interest a couple years ago a friend stated about need to be able to read/write cursive so one would have the ability to read historical original documents for self rather than have to take the word of some "educated" persons for what is says. I had never thought of that before.

Do I have children with great penmanship? No, not at all. I wish I had spent more time with the skill/discipline of handwriting.
