If you don’t have a favorite – try a fountain pen or calligraphy marker. I don’t have a photo of them, but you can find one in this post: Hand Lettering an Envelope for a Wedding or Graduation If you know how to write the alphabet, all you need is a little practice on lined paper to gain lettering as a useful and beautiful new skill set and one that will improve your handwriting at the same time.
I like the markers made by Sanford and one that is called – Elegant Writer. Most writing looks much better right away with one of these pen’s intense ink and slight variation in width because of the flat nib. It doesn’t require changing your basic handwriting – just taking it up a notch with better spacing, a curl or a flourish. Before we were allowed to use ink and fancy metal nib pens, we had to use a carpenter’s pencil – they have a wide flat lead – like the nib on a calligraphy pen.
We use fun, engaging, and developmentally appropriate instructional methods to enable children to master handwriting as an automatic and comfortable skill.
Handwriting remains a critical skill in the classroom.
I found it fascinating that every single time you put pen to paper, you are revealing a little bit about yourself. We can’t choose it, but we can exercise to get in shape – same with your handwriting – a little practice and learning some new techniques will get your handwriting in shape in no time.
Creative Hand Writing
You may be saying to yourself that your handwriting is awful and that there is no help for you. As a creative blogger, I receive books to review from time to time.The program follows research of how children learn best and includes materials that address all styles of learning.More than three million students benefit from the Handwriting Without Tears® program each year.In my daily life, the only thing that seems to get written down anymore – pen to paper is my grocery list tacked to my refrigerator or a quick note left on the counter to remind my hubby or kids to do something. I want to start or be part of the Handwriting is as much a part of our personal style as how we decorate our home or what we choose to wear. The way we form our letters and put them together so they flow into words is truly an extension of our personal style that I miss seeing in myself and others.It is one thing that we can claim as truly our own A reader left me a comment recently wanting to know if I knew of a site where she could get a font of her handwriting.It was a natural extension of my personal style – the flow from my brain to pen to paper.I enjoyed doing it and seeing the pretty script of others arrive in the mail or a note set on my desk at work and being able to recognize immediately who wrote it just by their handwriting. Computers, email, and smart phones are making our handwriting obsolete – a lost art.This no prep, comprehensive approach to teaching includes digital letter formations, teaching videos, and fun animations your students will love. I used to love my handwriting and enjoyed writing a personal note and addressing it with flair without any effort involved.Having to make page after page of angled lines until we got the feeling for holding the pencil the right way felt a little like having to write – on the grade school blackboard a hundred times as punishment for doing something wrong in class.I may not have liked it but also recognized how important it was to acquire this basic skill.
