The Importance of "Handwriting" Skills

Child Success Center - learning handwriting skills

Has your child struggled with handwriting skills throughout the school year?  

Now is the time to get them help. Handwriting skills are a key component and an essential part of school related activities. Refined hand skills are not only critical for early learning, but enables a child to use tools, participate in manipulative learning activities and most importantly express and demonstrate his/her knowledge through handwriting.

With the new Common Core Standards taking effect in the 2013-2014 School Year, children entering Kindergarten will be expected to know how to correctly and effectively hold and use a pencil, crayon or marker. Note taking and expository writing will have greater emphasis in grades K-5 than ever before. Sharper handwriting skills need to be acquired and bad writing habits abated early on in a student’s academic career.

Child Success Center’s Handwriting Club will also address the following common handwriting challenges:

  • Difficulty holding pencils or markers?
  • Difficulty coloring within the lines?
  • Messy or sloppy handwriting?
  • Writing too large or too small?
  • Occasional or frequent reversal of letters/numbers?
  • Difficulty learning letters/numbers correctly?
  • Difficulty staying on a line?
