Handwriting = 

print AND cursive 

Why is handwriting important?

1. It's a basic tool - we use it when we do classwork, write notes , fill out documents, take tests, etc. A.K.A. ALL THE TIME!

2. If your hand (and mind) are stressed about the writing, you can't give as much mental energy to the other parts - your ideas, organization, and enjoyment!

3. If you dread or hate writing, you won't want to write - therefore won't practice it - therefore writing won't improve. 
                    It's a vicious cycle of pain and no gain!

4. The more you write, the more you pay attention (and learn) spelling skills and reading skills.

Why cursive?

It dramatically improves your hand-eye coordination. This is good for typing, throwing/catching balls, creating / drawing - anything where you use your hands!

You will be able to READ cursive. For example, most older documents (many you must read in college!) are in cursive. 

It's faster! When you don't have to lift your hand off the page, you write faster!

Example of my handwriting (and goal) on September 16th, 2016:
