Writing lines


#14

at my primary school every page we would go on to write on we would have to do a “border” on first - basically go round the edges of the page doing continuous joined up letter Cs or Ys or whatever,

The headmistress was obsessed with good handwriting - which had to be done in this specific style they called italics. I have terrible handwriting, so it seems to have been wasted effort


#15

Lots of people don’t join up their handwriting


#16

I think I’m edging towards “we shouldn’t bother teaching kids how to write let alone how to do fancy handwriting” as a genuinely held opinion.
