Tools To Help You Write Cursive

Writing in cursive is a skill that some of us take for granted. It is a skill some of us have never known and it is a shame. Handwriting is beautiful because it is unique to you.

There are so many benefits to writing in cursive. It helps you get your thoughts down faster than printing. It looks so much prettier. Long ago, people were paid by how fast they could type on a typewriter or write with a quill and ink. This skill is neat because now not everyone can read it and for those of us who know it, it is like we are in a secret club. You must have the talent to understand it. All of our historical documents and the foundation of our country here in the United States, are all written in cursive. Shouldn't we all be able to read those? Lastly, writing by hand makes you smarter. Yup, it slows you down and allows you to use different parts of your brain. Eye hand coordination and dexterity help you in everyday life. Many never think of that.

Our mentor, Mr. Michael Sull came to teach and planted a seed with us. We started a contest to gather interest and keep cursive alive. With the help of certified instructor Marie Hornback, we are now in our third year.
