Excellent webinar. It was very helpful and informative. The information regarding why it is important to teach cursive and that it has value on many levels is key!
I too fear that cursive will become the secret language. I agree that the fluidity of cursive is beneficial for children.

What a wonderful presentation!!!! I also live in CO and the current common core curriculum is not allowing cursive writing as part of the daily learning. But I really agree with you about how cursive writing is so important in brain development! Thank you for sharing!
