The Children’s Book Review presents another guest post by Wendy Zachrisen (aka WendyZ). WendyZ was a teacher who couldn’t find a job when she had to move in the middle of the school year. (The things we do for love!☺) She wound up working for education companies for 12 years instead…and lived happily ever after. Wendy is currently an education specialist at Learning Resources, a manufacturer of award-winning classroom materials and educational toys.

Technology has changed our lives so much that some teachers and parents no longer consider handwriting a crucial skill! Yes, most of us, including our kids, can communicate faster using a keyboard/pad. (My cousin’s 12-year old scored 88 WPM on a Facebook typing quiz!)
