Handwriting
Children were so excited when they learned to write and were able to send notes to their friends, family and teacher. One of many that I have saved over the years.

There is a big debate in many schools right now over the teaching of handwriting:

Should we or should we not teach handwriting?

I guess I think there is something special about a hand written message, so much more personal.

It's just a matter of time before so many lose the ability to create a handwritten message. :(

Oh Christine, I can't even believe this is a debate. I absolutely loved learning cursive in grade school and penmanship was one of my favorite subjects. I really feel like part of me would have been stifled if I couldn't use my hand this way. I think your handwriting is like your fingerprints, no two are alike and I also think that creativity flows out though your hands. I really hope this isn't something we quit teaching children.

I love your photo here. What grade did you teach? I was a teacher's assistant in high school for 1st and 2nd graders and still have some of the notes the kids wrote to me. One in particular was so touching. A little girl named Dani wrote: "Dear Karen, I love you and I hope you can be my mom one day". There's nothing like it and I imagine you had many moments like that in your career. So sweet....

A beautiful done creation and i also agree with you about teaching cursive handwriting. Evidently more and more schools are teaching just printing and I imagine that soon that will go the way of the dinosaur too. Handwritten notes, letters and cards are much more treasured keepsakes than emails!
