Writing: We will begin cursive writing this week. Your child will bring home a cursive writing worksheet almost every night. We will do the front in class and then they will do the back for homework. I will give instructions, in class, on how the letters are formed, and I am sending home an instruction sheet, that you may keep, and refer to at home. Remember we use the D’Nealian cursive letters. We have told the children that they may not write their name in cursive (in class) until we have learned all of the lower case letters.
