Cursive Handwriting: Instruction, Remediation, Enrichment

Cursive writing has many advantages

  • It’s faster because the pencil is always on the paper.
  • It naturally helps to fix spacing issues.
  • It has grown-up appeal, so motivation tends to be high.
  • It can help children who never learned proper printing skills.

Buckhead Handwriting makes cursive writing simple

We use the award-winning Handwriting Without Tears curriculum to teach cursive skills to elementary students. HWT uses a clean, vertical style of cursive that is easy to learn, read, and write. When a child has good print skills, the transition from print to cursive is usually quite simple. For students who struggled with print skills, cursive instruction gives them a fresh start on the path to good handwriting.
