When are kids taught to write in cursive? Still torturing the sgs.

Seriously! Not taught anymore? How will they ever be able to read original documents? Or take notes/write exams when electronics forbidden?

Or send a birthday or thank-you card??? FFS. Maybe it's not all bad parenting causing the decline in common courtesy.

I started learning in grade 2 or 3 also.

So in addition to English, math and social studies, sgs12 has no idea how to write in cursive. Guess what we did today- long division and cursive. And lots of bitching. LOL

It was third grade for ne too. Felt so grown up writing that way.

I treasure old letters I have, written in beautiful copperplate cursive, from my dad, sister and others.

I practiced and practiced for years and am pretty good myself too.

So sad to think that will be lost? How will they sign their name????

Our schools don't teach it anymore. I still think they should know for their signature. Just get books at a teacher store and teach them yourself.
