When I was approached by Prisca LeCroy CursiveLogic after she saw a Facebook Post I wrote reflecting on how I want to be certain my children have the opportunity to learn cursive. I wanted my children to have a chance to sign their names to have a signature and whether or not the school system keep it within the curriculum I planned to make sure that happened. So when Mrs. LeCroy told me she had a new and innovative technique to help teach children learn cursive writing by moving away from memorization and focusing more on the shapes of the cursive style I hoped this would be a way to help me do just that.
WritingFor me the importance of making sure my children have the ability to sign their name, not in print but with their own signature is something I knew I was willing to fight for. When our schools made the announcement that this skill may be removed from the schools curriculum I was confused. How could they see this as something that was disposable? Why did they not see it as a necessary skill? To me it didn’t matter, I was determined to find a way to teach my children even if it meant doing it at home. Yet finding the right tools wasn’t as easy as I thought. Dry erase boards, workbooks with complicated memorizations… these thing seemed to make teaching it so tedious. I just wanted my kids to know the joy of signing their name in script.
As an elementary school student, I started looking forward to 3rd Grade from the time I found out it was then we would get the chance to learn how to ‘write fancy‘. 3rd Grade was when we would get to learn cursive or script as we called it. I always admired my mom’s grown up writing and couldn’t wait to get a chance to learn how to sign my name like she did! When I finally mastered my own signature I could not have been prouder. I loved being able to sign my name on the lines that said signature and I want the same joy for my children. I hope for them to be able to one day sign their names and say “That’s My Signature!”
I started the workbook Mrs. LeCroy sent with my daughter about 3 days ago I was so amazed with how excited my she was with learning the different shapes and how they connect together. Unlike some of the other methods I have tried she wasn’t stressed her anxious about trying to learn the ‘rules’. Instead she was able to focus on actually how they flowed together in their own shape groups. The connections started to come easily because she had a way to remind herself through the amazing CursiveLogic cues, color and shape groups.
“CursiveLogic is different from other handwriting methods because, instead of relying on rote memorization, CursiveLogic relies on the inherent structure of the cursive alphabet.” –CursiveLogic.com
I even asked a teacher friend of mine to take a look at the CursiveLogic workbook and here’s what she had to say about it…
“Overall, I feel CursiveLogic gives a really thorough approach to teaching cursive writing. I love that they provide a catchy phrase with each letter, that makes the learning fun, and helps with remembering how to write each letter.” –K. Gilmore, 2nd Grade Teacher
I am so excited to continue the CursiveLogic method and watch my daughter as she learns the art of cursive writing and keeps the joy while she does it.
CursiveLogic’s Kickstarter Campaign is ending in a few days and I am so excited to see where they go from here. I know that both my children and I are so grateful for this new way to approach such a classic style of writing.
