I so agree about the importance of good handwriting - this is an excellent post in my opinion:

‘Yes, but it’s more important that we focus on their reading skills’

‘Yes, but is this their own writing? Or did they just copy it and add words?’

‘You should be concentrating on improving the quality of their writing, not how it looks.’


Quirky Teacher writes excellent posts - often regarded to be controversial - but so full of common sense! The blog is well worth a visit for any teacher or parent!
