Why handwriting matters

Research supports the active teaching of handwriting. Writing by hand improves fine motor, visual motor, and creative writing skills. Many children of elementary school age are able to write faster and a greater amount by hand than keyboarding. Teaching children handwriting skills in a fun way will be motivating and boost success and efficiency when it comes to handwriting in the classroom. Just 15 minutes a day can make a big difference!
