Five Question Friday

1. Do you think cursive writing is overrated? (Schools in Indiana have now voted to take teaching cursive writing out of their curriculum.) Um, no. Definitely not. I think it's horrible that schools are starting to take that out of the curriculum.

2. Do you still use a pocket calendar or notepad or do you keep your info on your smart phone? If we're talking about keeping track of appointments and stuff, I use Google Calendar.

3. What 3 things would you save if your house was burning down? (family & pets are already safe) My computer, our wedding album, and DH's computer (where most of the kids' pics are).

4. Country Mouse or City Mouse, err Person? Suburban mouse – er, person.

5. If you could pick ANY reality show to go on, which would you pick? Dancing with the Stars. (Does that count as reality TV?) I know I'm not a star, but ballroom dancing is so much fun!

Wanna play along? Go HERE.

As a high school teacher, I've found that the lack of ability to read cursive on the part of my students is pretty scary. I've thought about adding in lessons on teaching how to read and write cursive, but there is just too much to do in a high school English classroom to justify the time.

I can imagine. Fortunately, my oldest is already learning it. And she's enjoying it. I'm hoping my state doesn't follow suit anytime soon.

1. Cursive is nicer looking than printing, most of the time.

2. What about having a signature? I don't get how that isn't seen as necessary.
