how do your kids write?

Assuming from that other post with the creepy note, I think quite horribly. My 7 year old writes like that and she does round out her y's and g's. I do it, I taught her so she obviously does it too. My 10 year old also wrote like that at that age. Right now, she can easily write as good as me.


Don't get me wrong, that note is worrisome but so many some are focusing on this kid's "excellent" penmanship. It's pretty average.

My son's writing is not that good. He's 6.

My daughter is 4 and pretty good. She loves to write though. My son hates it lol

This is how my dd that will be 9 tomorrow writes. My youngest is 6 and her handwriting is definitely a work in progress.

My 7 year old writes better than my 10 year old who has dyspraxia.

That could be a factor too. Also, I think I read somewhere that girls tend to have better penmanship that boys. I don't know if that's any true but both my girls started and loved to write at around age 5.

That's pretty! Does she like cursive better than block?

Neither of my kids use block writing..which is why my 6 year old's is a work in progress. LOL 

Lilly loves to write in cursive..she hasn't written in block letters since she was in Kindergarten and is in 3rd grade now.

I noticed the whole style changed after the 5-6th line as well as the writing technique. I think the DD started writing and mom finished it honestly IMO

No 7yr old I know can print that good.  1st thing I thought too was an adult wrote it.

That's interesting. Both my girls only write in block. Cursive wasn't taught until the 4th grade and oldest DD didn't care too much for it. I don't write much in cursive either so I'm no help lol.
