4Kiddos Posted January 18, 2012 Share Posted January 18, 2012 I am gearing up to start teaching my oldest son reading/handwriting. I reading through SWR as they have you do both simultaneously and am working on doing the learning log myself. They recommend teaching cursive first before manuscript handwriting. I learned manuscript first and was wondering if teaching cursive first will cause a problem with my ds being able to recognize the words in learning to read. He knows his phonogram sounds and I wanted to make the next step but I feel a little worried. Plus, I am just worried in general as this is my first time teaching anything! Did anyone here teach cursive first? Did your dc have a problem with reading and recognizing the words? For those of you who taught manuscript first, why did you? What do you all think? I would appreciate your help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
