Handwriting: My Journey


Handwriting is important…even in this day of laptops & cell phones. My handwriting is now legible, which is saying something compared to some friends of mine who are in high school and college – you know who you are!

In fact, how do you take notes in classes/meetings/etc. if you don’t know how to write?!? And if that cute guy asks for a copy of your notes – will he be able to read ’em?

Memorization is pretty easy for me if it is in a song, or part of my weekly handwriting assignments. I’ve learned science info, Bible verses, and even speeches using weekly handwriting assignments.

Since I believe that everyone should learn their Bible, I will be posting monthly handwriting pages with Bible verses for you to use with your children. You can see how I used them as weekly assignments as part of homeschool when I was younger in my post called: Handwriting Workbooks & Practice Sheets.

Here is a post with a list of my FREE Monthly Handwriting Pages. I hope you enjoy these and find them useful.

Since I was so young, and can’t remember much, I’m going to let my mom share my journey with you of how I finally learned to write.

Crazy JC Girl had quite a long journey with her handwriting. This was mostly due to the fact that she had poor upper body strength, fine motor skills, and eye/hand coordination issues as well. Therefore, weekly Occupational Therapist visits were part of our routine for several years.
