Ready to write?
Yesterday we put together a practice notebook. Today we’re going to start writing.
Write alphabets in print and in cursive. Jot a few sentences. Create a grocery or shopping list. Write silly words!
Don’t over think it.
The idea behind this assignment is to get a good sample of your natural handwriting. What does your print look like? What about your cursive? Is your natural hand a blend of the two? Mine is!
We’ll go into deeper analysis later, today just get some letters and words on the page.
You don’t fill the page completely, just jot stuff down.
I start the page by dating it and adding the assignment name. I also like to note which pen(s) I’m using.
Leave a little space between the lines you write, because we’re going to come back to this page in a couple of days. Just be sure to get down a variety of words (hence the shopping list). Toss in some numbers, too. We want to have a good sample base.
This is a super short assignment that is simply meant to get natural samples of your regular handwriting. We’ll come back later in the month to observe some of the changes we’ve made.
What are some of the areas you’ve found that need some improvement?
