Learn to write in cursive

Cursive or longhand writing seems to be a dying art but learning to write in cursive is relatively easy using the Montessori Method.

     With the proliferation of the keyboard and the computer it seems there is no need to start learning to write in cursive. It looks like cursive writing is on the way out with most kids at school just printing in block letters. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Learning cursive writing is quite easy and it is easier when your children are in kindergarten

The Montessori system starts the child on learning how to use a pencil.

     This way the child is learning to scribble with a pencil to build up hand strength and coordination. Another unique part of the Montessori approach is sandpaper letters. I make up the words my child is learning at school in sandpaper letters and get her to trace the words. The texture of the sandpaper helps to implant the words and letters on your child’s mind.

     When your child in tracing the letters you should get her to say the words and the phonic sounds. This system of learning to write in cursive is very simple because the child is actually writing the words as she traces the letters, without using a pencil. This sets the muscle coordination so when the child picks a pen she knows how to already write the letters. 

     Most children will start off writing with their finger in the air the same way as tracing the letters before writing with a pencil. I was very impressed with the Montessori system and now my daughter writes in cursive very well. This is the Montessori course I use and I recommend it to anybody with a child who is learning to write in cursive.
