    So happy about cursive!

    I will admit, I was dreading teaching cursive this year. I never had any thoughts of NOT doing it, but I was definetly not looking forward to it! My daughter is surprising me and is doing really well with it! I have always known that cursive is really easier to write, but I didn't BELIEVE IT for my child! It isn't perfect by any means, but she even said herself, "cursive is easier".

    When we really started printing 2 years ago, it was an extremely painful process. We spent a week on each letter, and sometimes even two. Sandpaper letters, writing in sand, chalkboard using the "wet, dry, try" method from HWOT, and then, finally trying on a line.

    We just started trying in on the line, for cursive! She's doing great! The pace is wonderful and we loved the review week built in! IT was so much fun writing in cursive outside on a beautiful day with sidewalk chalk!

    Sidewalk cursive in the sunshine -- very good to hear!

    My son found this too. Easier to keep thoughts flowing, easier to form letters, easier to write legibly, just easier.
