I learned cursive writing starting in grade 4 where I went to school. I still remember my teacher - Mr. Freeman, an awesome teacher he was! As a part of language arts he taught us cursive writing and I remember him sharing how him and his wife "back in the day would write snail mail" to eachother. I don't know what it was but I became obsessed in perfecting my cursive writing - and it wasn't hard as Mr. Freeman made us write in cursive for all of the writing portions of our class work from what I can recall. I love calligraphy and making things like cards for friends... so that's usually when my cursive skills come to play. But yes, I can still read and write in cursive.
That is wonderful.Best way to learn and be creative 😊
It truly is! I find it heart breaking that the art of penmanship is dying as everything is now typed up! I constantly hound my 5 year old niece to practice her writing and make writing and reading enjoyable by writing her little notes and reading to her a bunch when I get the chance to babysit her - I tell my brother and sis in law to do the same! She loves to write me cards ❤
It would be a good idea to teach the coming generation to write/read still in cursive or even print despite if everything is typed. It can be helpful especially once out there. We will never know but it happens.Keep it up! 😊 I admire the effort.
Not really. While I can write in cursive (we called it "script" where and when I grew up), I don't other than my signature and, really, I just scribble a line for my signature now.The only actual writing that I do is with a pencil for quickly teaching people things or using pens to sign greeting cards. However, in 1977-78 when I was in 9th Grade, I took "Industrial Design" which was a drafting class; a class for mechanical drawing using T-squares, triangles, a compass, a specialize ruler, and French Curve templates. In that class, we are taught to meticulously print by hand. This skill is called "Lettering" and it never left me. I only "letter" print now when I use a pencil or pen.For instance...
I can read cursive without a problem as long as it is legible.
Yes.I was taught to read and write cursive back in the Philippines. Since our modern alphabet is the combined Spanish-American (plus our own indigenous letter), it also applies to the system here in the U. S.But my cursive generally sucks, unless I really try to make it nice. But even then, best results demand a few drafts beforehand.
I only use handwriting. I never learned how to print. My printing is horrible. But my handwriting is near perfect. So I use cursive daily and if someone can't read it. That's not my problem. Should have learned growing up.
Yes. I teach cursive. It has come back into our state curriculum.
It used to be a thing in the past but haven't seen it for years now
I write in cursive since it's the last thing I learnt when it comes to writing. However, my writing is awful and, since cursive tends to be more rare, people have a hard time reading me. I write so badly that I would be able to impersonate doctors ^^
In Italy you need to write in cursive to pass all school levels
Buonasera 😊Una buona giornata
