Thank You for today. The 1st of September is Day of Knowledge we are celebrating with a bouquet of flowers for a teachers and a bottle of champagne for parents. New school year has just begun!
My daughter goes to class of third graders. She likes her pen and has just created poem about it:
“My Master Pen, You look like on Magic Wand. Sometimes my letters are dancing as ballerinas, sometimes as hippopotamuses”. I tell you a secret mostly hippopotamuses are in her papers.
Today I have introduced my daughter with Jake Weidmann and I am happy to share with you his fantastic calligraphy.
Jake Weidmann is the 11th Master Penman in the world!
“I took it upon myself to really work obsessively on my handwriting everybody else in school had their laptops out in there are typing away and I had a pen in a pad of paper.
Researchers have shown that children who know how to write by hand learn to read faster. “When we write, a unique neural circuit is automatically activated,” neuroscientists say.
“Handwriting is a movement skill. Try writing your name and address with eyes closed, most people are able to do it quite easily, this is because the movements of your hand when writing are firmly established in your movement memory because you have made them so often.. This is why children need to practise handwriting movements correctly and often” educators from Cambridge University say.
Dear Pen, Master Pen! Be my friend! Be my helper!
Teach me the joy of taking you to paper.
I write my soul by you. I express ballet of letters in my papers with you…
Happy New School Year!
