Mountcastle’s The Writing Lesson Series is an intuitive approach to teaching children the all-important skill of handwriting.
The developers of Mountcastle’s curriculum products believe that handwriting and reading should both be learned at the same time. Research has shown that the act of writing by hand forms a powerful connection between the brain and the neural pathways of the arm and hand. When combined with early reading instruction, it creates another connection between the eye and brain. The student sees the word s/he is writing and connects it with the same word in its printed form. This combination makes for mastery of reading and writing for life. Twenty-one states have mandated cursive handwriting in their public schools since 2021 and that number is likely to grow as other states see the benefit students receive from developing this significant skill.
The series includes reproducible worksheets that are customized to age and even include writing lessons and practice for very young children as well as the advanced materials for older students. Visit the website, https://www.mountcastlecompany.com/ for complete ordering information.
