Handwriting for 8th grader


Recommended Posts

Teach her typing?


LOL, sorry. That probably didn't help.


All I can say is that I got notes/comments every report card period for as far back as I can remember saying that I had sloppy handwriting. Every year, without fail.


And it never did improve. I still have horrible handwriting, which I can't read myself a few days later.


Thank goodness for typing- it hurts my hands less, it's always legible, and it's much quicker!

IME, all the instruction and practice in the world will not permanently improve an 8th grader's handwriting unless said 8th grader has an internal desire to improve their handwriting.


I can't remember what we used back in 6th grade (I did a massive cleanout after 8th grade), but it was nice because it wasn't geared towards young children. But, I may as well have spent that entire year banging my head against a wall for all it has permanently changed.


:cursing: Sorry to be so negative, but that's reality here.
