Here in St. Patrick’s BNS, we will teach your child to write using a cursive (joined) script from the beginning. Learning cursive handwriting from Junior Infants has many benefits including:

  • Relative ease in introducing cursive penmanship in early childhood.
  • Prevents reversals and confusion of letters.
  • Enhances spelling ability.
  • Develops internal control systems that can be used as tools for learning.
  • Potential for errors is diminished.
  • Improved reading skills.
  • Reinforces the skills for patterns in reading and writing.
  • Prevents erratic spaces between letters and words.
  • Helps Left Handed Children.
  • Thoughts can be put on paper more quickly and easier.
