    There is a definate philosophy that goes with the learning of cursive early on. You can probably go to the Abekka web site and find out specifically what it is for them. My children learned cursive before they learned to print and they learned to read the printed word. They attended a Montessori preschool that taught the children to trace sandpaper letters with their fingers before they ever held a pencil. Their philosophy is that the learning of cursive has a smoother flow and it is beneficial to the eye to hand coordination. My children did fine when they moved to a more traditional Christian school that uses Abekka but at that time didn't start cursive until the middle of third grade. They had to learn to print and did fine.
    Hope this helps. God Bless.
