When was the last time you hand wrote? It goes without saying that I primarily type, or text, my communication nowadays. When I do handwrite, it's become quite scribbly and virtually unrecognizable.
We've been working on handwriting (well, printing) with Isabelle for over a year now. And with the school year quickly approaching, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's making sure their 4 year old can spell their name. Learning to write is a pivotal milestone in every child's education and development. I love watching how excited Isabelle gets when she successfully writes her name, or completes an activity in her Pre-K workbook. She beams with pride.
BIC has developed a range of trendy writing tools to motivate kids and get them all set for the upcoming school year. They're colourful and easy to hold, and between the traditional pencil, mechanical pencil, pens, markers and highlighters, they have really covered the gamut of writing utensils.
BIC is also encouraging Canadians to join the BIC Fight For Your Write movement. The campaign includes weekly handwriting challenges to help prepare children for the upcoming school year and spark their creativity. For every challenge submission, BIC will donate $10 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada to help ensure Canadian children and youth have access to the best possible tools for success.
Every week, from August 9 until September 19, visit BIC Fight For Your Write and be a Handwriting Hero by participating in BIC’s weekly handwriting challenges. In addition to the donation from BIC, you'll also be entered into a weekly draw for a chance to win BIC Stationary prizes, and one entry into the grand prize draw to win $5,000 towards your child’s education.**
Simply Suppa is also awarding one reader (and writer!) with a BIC Prize Pack. To enter, fill out the form below, and happy handwriting!
