Cursive Licences

Monday, February 20th, 2017

Third grade students are filling out their applications for their cursive licenses.  They must complete the cursive practice workbook first. Once the book is completed, the applications are filled out. If the student’s application is approved, they receive the cursive license.  They are expected to maintain neatness and proper penmanship. If the students is caught speeding through an assignment or have messy writing, they will be issued a speeding ticket. If the messiness continues, they could lose their license. This idea was borrowed from Mrs. Groninger at Woodland Park School.
