Where do you stand on the issue? Your state may have eliminated cursive writing, but you have the option of teaching it to your child. Many helpful resources are available. You may want to start with a demonstration video on the Internet. The KBteachers website has worksheets in upper and lower case, as well as themed worksheets. Another website, HandWriting Worksheets, lets you make your own worksheets. First, you enter the title you want. Second, you type a word or letter and it will appear in dots for your child to trace. Third, you may modify the size and color of your practice sheets.
Ever since the 80s when standards education started, handwriting (cursive) practice has become less and less emphasized in schools. For the last 10-15 years, we have been lucky if anyone actually presented it for more than a few lessons. It is one of those things that require lots of drill/practice which, because of a lawsuit somewhere in the US during the late 80s, has disappeared. There is no more drill/practice on math facts and the math scores and abilities show it in most schools/kids. Also there has been greater emphasis on reading (not that anyone has changed what they were doing - they are now doing it longer and harder and earlier and that is another story entirely).
Many math games can easily be adapted for the classroom or for use at home. Some of these games can be used to teach or practice different math concepts and can be used with different ability levels. The following is an example of a fun math game that can be adapted for different skills and levels. This math game is very simple to play but requires skills in different areas. Students must have a concept of number order and place value to give the answer higher or lower and to provide guesses that are appropriate for the clues given. To begin select the upper and lower number limits, e.g. between 10 and 100. One player selects a number and records it on a piece of paper. The other player/s guesses what they think the number might be. For each guess the first player tells if the chosen number is higher or lower. Play continues until the number is guessed.
