hi.gif

Do you join your letters when you write or are your letters unjoined?

Which looks better/neater?

Children have to join their letters from the age of ~7/8 so obviously it's important and should be done by ALL.

I was shocked to learn that some people don't join even in adulthood lmao?

It also looks FAR FAR neater and it's easier to actually do considering the fact your pen doesn't have to leave the page between words.

I used to in primary school due to us having handwriting lessons and being able to use special felt pens if we mastered it, but I got out of the habit come secondary school, probably due to increases of workload and it was just easier to write unjoined(?). I don't think I could do joined handwriting now even if I tried tbh! laugh.gif

It depends, my everyday handwriting is joined but my 'in school' handwriting is not!
I can see the handwriting thread part 2 coming on. Let me get out my good pen laugh.gif

As for what looks better, it depends on how well the individual is on writing. Joined handwriting can look sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing but can equally be totally messy and unreadable, whereas unjoined can be clear and precise but also less 'special' because anyone can do it.

Cursive writing is beautiful and definitely the preferable way of stylising my handwriting too! My writing habits are a bit weird though, I aim to join it all up but sometimes an odd word will come out in a print style. This is my typical handwriting for example and 'handwriting' turned out a bit loose unintentionally laugh.gif I have stopped trying to understand my writing habits though when I hold my pen like such a weirdo.



Handwriting classes used to be one of my favourite parts of Primary school *.*

Not joined if I’m writing properly

Basically this tho. I don't really understand what the point of teaching kids joined handwriting is. Sure I used to do it like everyone at school cos we were basically forced to but I fell out of the habit the moment teachers stopped caring ~

I think both joined and unjoined handwriting can look nice or not nice :monkey:

I naturally write joined but I think my non joined writing is more neat. I have appalling writing though.

I guess it's about concentrating on letters and writing clearly more than anything and joined handwriting just means you have to take care otherwise it'll be totally unreadable.

it seemed odd to me that they cared so much about joined writing in primary then but as soon as you get to secondary you're almost expected to do it non-joined. seems a bit pointless in this day with computers now.

personally I don't do it joined out of habit and as it's a lot quicker.

Joined looks better but not MY joined handwriting, which as I believe I've posted previously, looks horrifying. I can only look decent if I take extra care and write with the speed of a crippled sloth. Print I can do okay but it looks so awful I can't bring myself to do it.

thank god for word processors

You see that's interesting because I'd have thought it was the exact opposite of that? I certainly pay more attention to individual letters when writing non-joined than joined. You have any number of 'n', 'm', 'u' etc. in a row in a word and if I try to write it quickly joined those letters just look like the same repeating sequence of indistinguishable squiggles.

I stopped as soon as I wasn't a kid any more.

I could do it but it's not very me, also its slower than print.

That's what I mean, you have to write slower joined to make sure letters are clear which I guess helps writing and letters sink into children's subconscious.

I could just be talking a load of crap tbh! tongue.gif Like I said, the thing I was most interested about was getting a fancy pen rather than considering how joined handwriting would help me or not.

I was forced to used joined-up in primary, and therefore all my writing is incomprehensible laugh.gif

When I'm writing on the front of exams etc I always use printed but it's so much slower...
