Did you know that there is a National Handwriting Day to celebrate John Hancock's birthday?! Oh yes, it's true and this year it will be on January 23rd! Kids love to celebrate ALL special days so take this opportunity to encourage good handwriting skills. Some ideas might include using special paper or note cards to make a hand written note for a parent, grandparent or teacher. Write a note to a soldier overseas or to an elderly person in a nursing home. You can find more ideas and free downloads of paper on the Handwriting Without Tears web page at http://www.hwtears.com/handwritingday2012
and on the Zaner Bloser web page at http://www.zaner-bloser.com/write-newsletter-january-2012-feature-story-happy-national-handwriting-day
Happy Handwriting Day to you!
