National Handwriting Day

Tomorrow, January 23, 2010, is National Handwriting Day. While the "holiday" may have been created in the 1970's by the writing-instrument manufacturing community, National Handwriting Day remains a great opportunity to remind students and parents about the importance and value of strengthening penmanship skills.

According to the American Federation of Teachers“students’ sentence-writing skills, the amount they write, and the quality of their writing all improve along with their handwriting.”

Here are a few links to interesting Handwriting Day activity ideas:
Happy National Handwriting Day!

  1. I can't wait to see your examples of how your handwriting has evolved! I am obsessed with the different forms that hand writing takes. I love collecting old postcards just to see the writing.
