In a world dominated by digital technology and qwerty keyboards, why teach handwriting?

Research shows that handwriting assists with the preparation for early literacy, increases creativity and productivity, improves learning difficulties and enhances auditory learning. It is this understanding that makes Handwriting today the must-have new series for every teacher. This innovative resource is packed with handwriting activities designed to combine the teaching of handwriting with fun and effective cross-curricular activities, including Science, Mathematics and Health.
