Happy National Handwriting Day!!!
National Handwriting Day was established in 1977 on the birthday of John Hancock as a way to acknowledge the history and importance of penmanship in all of our lives. With technology making everything faster and easier, there is still nothing that tops a personal, handwritten, note or a card. Celebrate National Handwriting day today but preparing letters for your loved ones — by hand.
Do you ever wonder if handwriting altogether will become a lost art? Something our children’s children will not understand? One way to prevent this happening is by sharing your love for handwriting with your children, and making sure they do the same.
But what if I don’t love handwriting?
There are several books, lessons, and tools you can use to turn your handwriting into artwork. Practicing for fifteen minutes each day will allow you to transform your sketchy penmanship into beautiful works that your great-grandchildren will cherish. Find our top ten ways you can transform your handwriting below.
This book explains how all the letters can be made gracefully and rapidly using various combinations of a few basic pen strokes. It explains Spencer’s philosophy of teaching principles which engage the mind as well as the hand. It also details his methods for teaching classes of children. One of these is having the children write rhythmically, in concert, as the teacher counts. The power of this method is being rediscovered today.
These books, 5 copybooks (available separately or as a set), may be used to introduce cursive writing to second or third graders or to improve the handwriting of older students or adults.
