No more frustration!
on January 8, 2016
My daughter hated-HATED- handwriting. She couldn't see a purpose in it and generally made my life a living hell while we did it. Then I found A Reason for Handwriting. She sstill doesn't love it and it was a bit of a chore to first learn the letters, but once she learned them, shse started writing notes on her own, with out me prompting. She wrote my grocery liss and her chore chart on her white board IN CURSIVE! She sees a purpose in it now and I love that she is learning Bible verses and sending notes to friends and family.
As far as the actual letter formation, I do find fault with not showing the "connectors" on all the letters- how a vowel connects to the preceding letter can be left up to the child's discretion and, with no basis for comparison if they are writing without the book, my daughter gets flustered because it doesn't "look right." Maybe this is the new way to write, but they way I learned - with beginning and ending strokes for every letter, takes the guesswork out of it for the child.
