From what I understand some schools are no longer teaching cursive handwriting. I guess they feel it’s outdated.
I think it’s a bit short-sighted – often cursive it the perfect handwriting style for children who struggle with manuscript. Especially if dysgraphia or dyslexia is something you’re working with.
In cursive it’s difficult to reverse ‘b’ and ‘d’ or flip ‘m’ and ‘w’ without realizing it.
Also having the ability to write in cursive allows children the ability to READ cursive. There is still a lot of print out there that uses cursive … and so does Grandma in her birthday cards.
So to practice on your own outside of school or to teach it in your homeschool, you might want to try creating your own cursive handwriting worksheets.
On this free website, Handwritingworksheets.com you can practice single words or whole paragraphs. It also includes the ability to create traceable letters and words. There is also the chose of creating manuscript worksheets as well.
I’ve found this a great treasure for creating my own handwriting curriculum and while you cannot save any of your creations it is still a super useful tool.
