In February of 2020, I had the opportunity to attend a Handwriting Without Tears workshop in Manhattan. It was a reminder not only of how important handwriting instruction is but also of the appropriate techniques needed to provide effective handwriting instruction. The most memorable lesson shared at this workshop was this: We need to be teaching handwriting every day. With that in mind, I would like to share with you what I learned so that families have the opportunity to participate in consistent handwriting instruction at home.
