Breaking down the importance of good handwriting

The gift of good handwriting is not only a gift that is great to give during Valentine's Day, but it is also a gift to give a child that will help them in years to come. I'm excited to share with you some fun facts I learned about handwriting.

  • One-third of school-age children grapple with illegible handwriting.

  • When children put pen to paper, neural pathways light up, fostering enhanced recognition of letters, shapes, and sequences—an invaluable mental workout for their developing minds!

  • Students ranking among the top 10 in their class generally demonstrate good handwriting skills.

  • Writing by hand activates brain pathways, improving both memory and understanding.

  • Good handwriting, often known as "brain writing," helps build strong coordination between the brain and motor skills.

  • Handwriting helps improve small muscle skills, eye-hand coordination, and the tiny muscles needed for tasks like tying shoes or buttoning shirts.
