As a result, I have decided to incorporate into English class "Basic Handwriting" skills. An excellent resource for this is the consumable booklet entitled "Canadian Handwriting - Book E". I have ordered a class set of these booklets - one for each student. The cost of these booklets is $ 7.00 each. When our booklets arrive I will send along another note to remind you of this payment. If this cost is a problem or concern, please let me know and the school will cover the cost.   Homework Monday: Read 15 minutes.
