The school year is quickly approaching, and parents across the country are preparing for their children’s first day back in the classroom. To help them get ready, BIC has developed a range of trendy writing tools and exciting handwriting activities that are certain to engage kids and motivate them for the upcoming school year.
Learning how to write by hand is an important skill that helps children become both independent and confident learners. That’s why BIC is encouraging Canadians to join the BIC Fight For Your Write movement. The campaign includes weekly handwriting challenges on www.BICFightForYourWrite.ca 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.
