Our ancestors paid great attention to calligraphy (the word is of Greek origin: callus is beautiful, grafo is writing). Cyrillic Slavic, Chinese characters, Arabic script – all these are whole types of written art.
However, now nobody wants to display letters accurately: modern adults are actively working on the keyboard. Frankly, it is easier for me to type the text in a matter of minutes, than to write it by hand. Besides, I perfectly understand the owners of the unreadable handwriting (since I myself am such) – try to explain to everyone that this is your letter d, and p differs from the special form of the squiggle.
But then again, each of us learned penmanship in childhood, so working on the keyboard for us is rather a conscious choice, a convenient replacement with a ballpoint pen. But what to do with the current children, some of whom from an early age sits at the computer. Perhaps, they, practically not using a pencil and a pen, lose something?
It turns out, yes! Lose! Modern studies using tools such as, for example, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), show that handwritten writing is a very useful activity.
Exercises in tracing lines and writing letters improve fine motor skills, as well as contribute to the development of thinking. It turns out that it’s not for nothing that our childhood passed over the writings and notebooks …
In addition, scientists argue that writing classes improve attention, and the little man learns to delve deeper into the essence of things. But learning to computer literacy before mastering the usual paper one often forms a superficial perception of reality.
By the way, images of the brain taken at the time of a person writing letters show that with consistent and consistent finger work, the areas that are responsible for speech, thinking and memory are activated.
There are still minutes of penmanship with our children, but every year less and less attention is paid to calligraphic writing. And now we have to remember that conducting classes that promote the development of the child is our direct parental responsibility.
