Heart_Mom Posted June 13, 2012 Share Posted June 13, 2012 I started teaching my oldest cursive when he was 8 years old. We first used Cheerful Cursive, which didn't go well for him (but it's been great for my 2nd child!), and now we've done two levels of HWT cursive. Well actually, he's almost finished the 2nd HWT cursive book. It's just not going well. He can do it, but with difficulty. It's legible if he really tries. Today he had a copywork assignment in HOD to copy from a cursive model and he really struggled with it. It's hard for him to copy from a traditional cursive after learning the HWT model. And just writing in cursive (composing something) is hard for him too. I'm tempted to just let him print and not worry about writing in cursive. He can read cursive, and he can write his name in cursive. Is there really a need for him to write well in cursive? I guess I'm trying to figure out if it's worth it to continue...
