There was a time when girls used to sit and practice their penmanship for hours because as adults they would be required to create elegant invitations for parties and correspondences. Fast forward two hundred years or better. Our kids are becoming accustomed to typing lol, brb, tmi, wu, wyp and other things into cell phones, instant messengers, and email programs. It's no wonder that penmanship and spelling have gone out the window for many kids.
If you'd like to teach your kids about the art of writing, want to give them extra practice, or don't know where to start for homeschool writing activities, you'll want to grab your copy of What About Penmanship from the Bogart Family Resources
