As handwriting instruction continues to decline in classroom priority, “Raggs,” the Emmy Award-winning preschool TV series, and the Peterson Directed Handwriting Company have joined forces to reinforce the value of learning basic handwriting skills with the introduction of a new ABC’s music video.

The Peterson Method’s proven methodology focuses on smooth, rhythmic motion with audible reinforcement to improve attention span, motor skills, muscle memory and ultimately handwriting fluency. Founded in 1908 by Dr. P.O. Peterson, The Peterson Method changed the way letters were taught. The Peterson Method has been used to teach millions of students worldwide and is popular in today’s classrooms and homeschool environments.

“The new Raggs ‘ABC Song’ video demonstrates the rhythm in the basic stokes of each printed letter in a fun, musical cartoon,” according to Rand H. Nelson, President and CEO of Peterson Directed Handwriting. “That is the first step in understanding the principles behind The Peterson Method.”

“Raggs” new 2:00 minute video reprises the classic “ABC Song” in a new rockin’ rendition by the Raggs Band from the TV series. The “ABC Song” video can be found on Raggs TV on YouTube and The “ABC Song” is featured on Raggs new Top 20 Kids Songs album, which is also available on iTunes.
