Elementary School Curriculum. Fourth and Fifth Years: Grade IV. Penmanship


by Ida E. Robbins - 1907

The article on penmanship in the TEACHERS COLLEGE RECORD for September, 1906, applies so fully to Grades IV and V that little more need be said. We work along the same lines for interest, effort, good sitting position, pen-holding, form of letters, uniform size, neatness, and arrangement of work. In these grades we begin to work for speed so far as is possible without sacrificing other essential qualities of good penmanship. Sometimes the pencil is used for drill where we are working for easy movement alone, but the bulk of our written work must be done with pen and ink. No regular period on the program is assigned to penmanship in grades above the fifth. By insisting upon care in every detail of the written work, and by giving individual attention to poor writers we obtain the result at which we aim a neat, legible, and practical style.
