Cursive handwriting is not part of many schools' curricula. However, research has found it to be a beneficial stimulant for a developing brain. Experts dealing withoccupational therapy activitieshighly recommend cursive handwriting as a learning activity. When teaching cursive, use adapted grade-level cursive writing paper to ensure students can produce letters with the proper proportions and letter lines. Practice on cursive handwriting paper is essential for building motor memory. As with the acquisition of competence in printing, cursive writing requires constant and blocked practice, followed by random and variable practice. In other words, it adheres to Motor Learning Theory. And so when teaching cursive writing for beginners, start with practicing letters in isolation repeatedly. Eventually, move on to forming these same letters in words of increasing length.
Take an in-depth look into how cursive handwriting can make a difference for a child.
Why Is Cursive Writing For Kids So Important?
Why so much fuss over the way kids write? Well, as it turns out, writing by hand affects brain development a great deal. In fact, research from the neurosciences shows that when kids put pencil to paper, the electrical activity in the brain is highly stimulated, comparably to that of adults. The interhemispheric communication in the brain is the genesis of memory, problem-solving, and creativity. The lack of cursive handwriting instruction in schools is a missed opportunity for your child for learning. Whether introducing cursive writing in second grade or cursive writing for 3rd grade, students expand their learning horizons when turned onto the flowing movements of cursive lettering.
