K-3 Writing Foundations Standards Implementation Series #2- Handwriting This one-hour webinar is the second in a series of four webinars focusing on K-3 Writing Foundations Standards implementation. This webinar will focus on the new handwriting standard, research and evidence that handwriting practice done in short intervals supports the acquisition of reading skills and promotes writing fluency. Similar to the idea of fluency in reading aids in comprehension of text, as young writers develop handwriting fluency, they can then focus their attention on generating and organizing ideas. Keyboarding skills will also be part of the discussion.
Participants are encouraged to attend with a partner or group to facilitate discussion. Handouts will be emailed 1-2 days prior to the webinar.
