Letter Spacing is Quickly Mastered

Since all the letters within a word are connected, students only lift their pencil between words, which allows students to master spacing quickly in their writing.

The word

Less Fine-Motor Skill Needed

Learning to write cursive requires minimal lifting of the pencil, which means less fine-motor articulation than writing in print.
