Dedicated to the Benefits of Cursive Writing
Videos, a Cursive First Approach, and More
Cursive is a vital tool for helping students master written expression, critical thinking, and increased comprehension and participation.
- Writing by hand has been called a holistic activity, intricately interconnected with mental habits of focus, concentration, and comprehension.
- Cursive writing, by its nature, involves flow and rhythm, and well mastered, reduces stress through its fluid, artful nature.
- According to an article on Scholastic.com “Kids with better handwriting have “better reading grades, better reading scores on the SAT, and better math scores.”
The Peterson Method curriculum uses a unique movement-based strategy to teach skills for fluency and legibility. We use a unique color rhythm method combined with vocalizations that aid in developing the motor memory skills to write fluidly and confidently.
