Every child had to learn to write in cursive. Good penmanship was taught to be important. I still teach my kids that it is. Too bad the schools don't.

Cursive writing is important. It isn't about fancy writing. The ability to write in a rapid, fluid manner is about forging a connection between mind and hand. Studies have shown us that those who take notes in cursive have more retention and a greater understanding, with more original thought about the implications. Those who print notes miss large amounts of information. Those who type their notes regurgitate with the least original thought. We are witnessing the loss of a skill set.

Fall leaf craft.  I use hot glue.  I have the children go outside and collect their sticks, leaves, grass, mulch, etc, bring it inside and point to where they want me to glue it.
