Good penmanship is a mark of Christian carefulness and courtesy because writing that is difficult to read is not appreciated. Good penmanship is necessary for good communication and is an aid to efficiency because well-written messages are far less time consuming to read than those poorly written. Good penmanship will affect students' attitudes for doing their best work. It will also leave a good testimony for your school program because penmanship is the first thing that impresses the critical eye, before the quality of work done is apparent. The main emphasis of Grade 4 is perfecting the students' cursive handwriting.
