"And the survey said"
This is really just a quick little survey, and that is if some of you all remember. I have a mixed group of followers some with kids my own age, some empty Nester's, some school teachers, etc......
My son Jack just started fourth grade. First assignment yesterday was to write numeric numbers in cursive. Well guess what? He only touched upon it toward the end of last year. To the lack of my awareness, he really should know somewhat how to do this. Do you recall when you learned cursive? My older boy informed me he started to learn in second grade. Of course we were in a different school system. The teacher did reassure me he is NOT the only one. There are a handful of kids that will be working in small groups now to catch up on this. Just thought I would put this out there and see what y'all had to say.
For the record my cursive handwriting is mediocore at best. My husbands, terrible, and my older boy terrible. How is your handwriting?
Sad to see that in our generation we write very little. No more hand written letters, no more hand written reports, etc.....I think the kids are missing out in a way...what do you think?
