The fashion for cursive writing comes and goes. Many years ago all children were taught to write in an elaborate cursive script, requiring many hours of weekly practice to perfect. Over the years as other subjects began to crowd out handwriting lessons in the school curriculum this gradually gave way to teaching a basic print style of handwriting (ball and stick). Many people now believe that keyboarding skills are more important than good handwriting. Others believe that even computer keyboards will soon be defunct with speech recognition software becoming more popular.
If your child has serious difficulties with math, start with the grade level she can comfortably handle. So if your child is currently in 5th Grade, you might have to start with 4th Grade or even 3rd Grade math. That is all right. Do not think that you are insulting her intelligence. Just tell your child that you have a proven strategy for helping her ace her math tests at school. Buy lots of workbooks for your child. Get her to solve lots of math problems. You can also download worksheets from the internet. You can start slow but over time your child should be spending at least an hour a day on math. I am not joking. Since your child is starting with math problems at a lower grade level she should not find it all that difficult and dreary.
Forty one states so far have adopted the Common Core State Standards for English, which does not require students to learn cursive. Some states have since returned cursive to their curriculum. The argument against cursive handwriting is that it is time-consuming and not nearly as beneficial as learning keyboarding skills that students will need while moving on to high school. Let us look into the importance of cursive a little further. Cursive handwriting is viewed by some educators and parents alike as an essential part of education. Young children and teens today are using technologies not available to generations past. Many parents feel that learning cursive is improving their children has fine motor skills and science is backing up that theory.
