Introduction to Cursive Writing
Research shows that learning to write in cursive offers brain benefits to students that they don’t get from printing letters or keyboarding. Studies also show that children who learn cursive in addition to manuscript score better on reading and spelling tests, perhaps because the linked-up cursive forces writers to think of words as wholes instead of parts. Even more exciting are the findings that learning to write in cursive may help ease symptoms of dyslexia. Because many districts no longer provide cursive instruction, we are proud to be including this camp in our summer schedule. In this mini-camp, students will learn the lower-case cursive letters and get practice in fun and informative ways to incorporate them into their writing.

Why not make an investment in a prep class that can make a positive difference in your student’s future? Higher test scores can open doors to college admission and scholarship opportunities.

Qualified teachers will lead them through a variety of practice questions in the four subject areas: Math, Science, English, and Reading.
