Handwriting is an important element of school readiness. Recent research findings demonstrate that handwriting improves children's creative writing skills and fine motor skills. Handwriting also contributes to children's recognition of letters and numbers. (Source: Longcamp, Zerbato-Poudou, & Velay, 2005; Handwriting without Tears.)
