The Importance Of Good Penmanship
Many do not realize the importance of developing legible writing in children. Correct writing skills starts with knowing the right way of holding a pencil. This way, the process of writing is easier and less cumbersome. Children and parents need to realize that a clean and legible writing makes it easier for both teacher and student to decipher the words spelled out. When the penmanship is scrawled and messy, it could be read as something else or worse, marked as wrong simply because it cannot be read.
At preschool, books should be provided for developing proper handwriting skills. First Veritas has publications like the Pinwheel and the SmartKids books that have sections dedicated specifically for this purpose. The publishers understand that in order to make education relevant, it has to cover every significant skill that a child needs to develop.
