I have so many young students with very poor writing. These pads are helping them to improve. I am personally appalled at the apparent lack of time our schools are spending on writing. First they dump cursive, and now it appears there is no time to ensure that printing is legible! Sadly, many don’t even see the need to write well! These pads are wonderful! I also think the kids like writing on them and comparing their letters to the ones on the sample card.
