    cursive-to all

    Hi Everyone...I teach 5th so I really dont need to TEACH them cursive. Most of them know how to write in cursive when they come to me, so it is taught in 3rd and 4th. I would teach it if my district told me I had to. I was just saying that if they can't write in cursive very well, than I don't FORCE them to. For some its a no-win battle. I do feel its important, thats why I write in cursive on the board...after all it is 5th grade and they should be able to read cursive. I do print for some if they can't read it. Writing it on the board is at least giving them exposure to it .I was just trying to make the point that cursive writing is not ABSOLUTELY necessary for students to be able to write well. I am sorry if I offended anyone. That was not my intention.
