Today’s world is full of technology. We look at screens a lot. We do not write in hand so much anymore. Handwriting seems less important. But is it?

Experts say that writing in hand is very important, especially for children. Handwriting helps the brain develop well. Neat handwriting can even help children get better grades in school. Writing helps children connect letters with sounds. It is different from typing on a computer.

Writing with a pencil and paper may be better for memory.  It helps improve thinking. So, handwriting is still important for children to learn and practice.

Difficult words: develop (to grow or change), neat (clean or smooth), improve (to make something better).
