Mr. Meerkat is Here!

*Update - read this post to see why we stopped cursive until 2nd/3rd grade

Katie was so very happy to find out that Mr. Meerkat arrived on Saturday!  You may be saying "Who is Mr. Meerkat!?"  He is the cute character that teaches Memoria Press' New American Cursive program.


We did the first lesson today with the introduction and the letter a and Katie was having so much fun that she begged to do b as well, so we did.

  2. I'm learning along with her, I don't know how to write in cursive lol. I can sign my name in curvy lines but I don't know cursive. Crazy huh? We had it in 3rd grade public school but from then on they let me write in manuscript so I saw no need to continue cursive and forgot it!
