Is it true that all you really need to know you learned in kindergarten?  Many believe the fundamental skills taught in the first years of elementary school are some of the most important.  Two of those skills are coming together for National Handwriting Day Jan. 23  when students in the Little Rock area have an opportunity to celebrate handwriting and share kindness.

Because sharing kindness is critical for students to learn, students are asked to write handwritten notes of kindness and share pictures of the notes on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using hashtag #LWTNationalHandwritingDay from now through Feb. 17, National Random Acts of Kindness Day.

Educators are gathering to address the importance of the handwriting and cursive and address how to effectively teach these skills while making it interactive and fun.  

Two workshops will be held in Litle Rock at the Hilton Garden Inn at 10914 Kanis Rd.

  • Friday, Feb. 2, 8 a.m.-noon, preK readiness and writing workshop: The award-winning "Get Set for School" preK curriculum uses lively music and playful activities to help young children build a solid foundation for school success.
  • Saturday, Feb. 3, 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m., cursive instruction from 1-4:30 - This kindergarten –fifth-grade workshop continues participant interaction and includes novel ways to teach and write cursive.
