I am a 5th grade Dual Language teacher in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Dual Language teachers need materials in both languages, but unfortunately there are not sufficient funds available to make all of the purchases for our classrooms. I believe that by the 5th grade, all students should be able to write in cursive without any difficulties if they have been practicing since an early age. Unfortunately, the majority of my students cannot write in cursive and get easily frustrated when they have to copy something from chart paper or the blackboard because they do not have the speed that cursive writing provides. HOBBIES AND IDEAS LEARN TO WRITE WITH RAISED RULING TABLET has unique raised lines that students can feel, which makes it ideal for practicing cursive writing. Each tablet includes printed and embossed solid lines, as well as printed dotted lines for practicing writing the alphabet in cursive. The tablet will definitely get my students off in the right direction and will get them motivated to practice and improve. All 27 of my students will participate in this activity, which they will remember for a lifetime. Cursive writing is unique and personalized. After this activity, they may even develop their signatures!
