The Clear Path To Handwriting
By Nan Jay Barchowsky

Learn to write for lifelong pleasure and reward. Learn to write logically. Learn to write in a linear manner. Start with basics. Then, progress steadily to fluent, legible handwriting. What are the basics? Capital letters? No. Lowercase letters? No. What then?

There are two essentials for good handwriting: Posture and rhythm. Young children can learn both of them in playful activities. Posture relates to the appropriate position of the body for any physical activity. For handwriting, as with playing the piano for example, it is important that the arms, hands and fingers be relaxed in order to move effectively. Rhythm evolves from focused, yet relaxed movement.

Of course, it is best to start learning with a sound, logical program as a young child, and follow it through to the development of a fluent hand. It is also easiest to define a linear program as it moves smoothly from pre-writing activities to learning to make the characters to fluency. We will go there first, and then address the path for the older student.

One of the most difficult tasks of a homeschool parent is choosing an effective language arts curriculum. Many parents find themselves mixing and matching programs in an attempt to create the best match for their child.  And, for families with multiple children, a language arts program that works for one child often doesn’t work with another and what works one year, may not work the next. Taking this dilemma into consideration, Centrifuge Language Arts Curriculum designed a comprehensive K-12 language arts program that is adaptable to all academic levels and meets the needs of both accelerated and disadvantaged students. The curriculum framework features complete correlated coverage of 6 areas of language arts: phonics, English grammar, spelling, creative writing, penmanship and how to teach reading.

Test A New Curriculum, This Summer and Enjoy Your Time Off!

Summer is a great time to try new things. After all – following the same learning routine year round can get to be repetitive… and boring. With Time4Learning.com, you can easily experiment with a technology-based curriculum that was voted as a top three selection of the Homeschool.com "Top 100 Educational Websites of 2009."

Time4Learning takes an “outside-of the-box” approach to education; a refreshing change from sitting in a classroom or at a table reading textbooks. Kids get an individual learning path based on subject skill mastery rather than grade level. They can work at their own pace and on their own terms. This gives them a sense of ownership over their progress, which can be a great motivator. Plus, students get access to the grade above and the grade below each subject, so they can advance or review any time they need to.
