Handwriting is a critical component of communication and school performance.  While many classrooms are adopting digital communication formats, handwriting continues to be an important element to learn.  Handwriting has shown to involve multiple systems of the body and brain, helping to integrate these systems.  Handwriting involves fine motor skills, visual skills, tactile sensory integration, and gross motor stability.   Regardless of the prevalence with digital forms of communications, children who learn good penmanship and physically write do better in school, have greater cognitive functioning, and improved information recollection.
