stacey bickmore  - $65

It is not a lost art!!! Why do children need cursive writing skills in a keyboard world? Cursive writing has been shown to help develop fine motor skills, improve brain development in the areas of thinking, reading, language, and working memory, prevents letter reversals and confusion often found in printing, helps reduce spelling mistakes, and even assists children with disabilities like Dyslexia, ADD, Autism, and visual-motor deficiencies.

Cursive also allows children to have a signature of their own, write a personal thank you note, sign a check or legal document one day, write/take notes quicker, and stay connected with the past by being able to read historical documents, or handwritten letters/notes from others.

This 30 minute class will have your student writing cursive letters, words, and short paragraphs in a positive, relaxing, and fun environment. Students will be expected to do some practice at home.
