Why is handwriting important? If handwriting is taught, students’ writing quality, quantity and speed have been shown to improve. When handwriting becomes automatic, students can better focus on the planning and thought organization required for composition. Handwriting influences a student’s ability to write words, impacting the ability to transform ideas into written language by constructing multi-word sentences. Research suggests the benefits of handwriting practice have been shown to: * Increase brain activation * Impact performance across all academic subjects * Provide a foundation for higher-order skills
