Our WHSmith handwriting roadshow got off to a flying start earlier this month with a free drop-in workshop in the Isle of Man branch of WHSmith.
There is something really special about helping children and adults to write legibly. Once corrected, it is a life skill that lasts forever.
At our workshops, we show how easy it is to improve handwriting when armed with a few simple tips, a little bit of knowledge on the science behind how we write and one of our workbooks. For instance, did you know that carrying shopping bags, washing the dishes, pegging out the washing and playing racket sports are all superb for strengthening the hand muscles required for holding a pencil in the dynamic tripod grip and steering it across the paper?
Deputy store manager, Kevin Lee said, “It is always a pleasure to welcome Morrells Handwriting back into our store. These free handwriting workshops give us an opportunity to help our local community.” Kevin continued, “I am always amazed by how many people turn up to the handwriting event and it is wonderful to see the children smiling as they leave our store.”
We are looking forward to visiting the Isle of Man WHSmith store again later in the year for another free drop-in handwriting workshop. In the meantime, if your child needs handwriting help over the summer holidays, pick up one of our handwriting workbooks in the store.
