I am a second year teacher at a public school with a low economic level in Brooklyn, NY and I would like to teach my students to write cursive. I teach 3rd grade and last year, I saw my colleagues and myself struggle with teaching cursive writing to students, since it is not really built into our curriculum. I tried to fit it in, here and there, making MANY copies from the one handwriting book that I had. But I didn't see much improvement in my students' writing. They need to have some familiarity with cursive as they enter 4th grade because they are expected to start using cursive more often by that time. My plan for helping my students with their cursive writing is to purchase handwriting workbooks in which my students could work both in class and at home. I also feel that I will have more time for this endeavor this year, than I did in the previous year. Our City Wide Test preparation will be ending half way through the year and with the test being over, we will have plenty of time to focus on our handwriting. I did some research and found a workbook that I think would be amazing in teaching cursive. It breaks down the movements into steps and builds up to actually letter writing, making letter connections, and then writing words. It also has plenty of practice area, unlike many of the other books that I have seen. This book would not only help my students with their writing, but make me a more effective teacher of cursive writing by showing me how I can make my instruction simpler. Handwriting is an important skill for children and I would love to work on improving it. The handwriting workbooks will definitely be a great big helping hand toward my aspiration.
