Calligraphy is making the symbols of letters infinite through giving them special meanings, and stabilizing them within a certain plane order. Learning to write well depends on the training of the hand and the eye. During the process of learning, however, writing is a kind of skill that asks for continuous and regular practices for improvement. It is also crucial to have a conscious and inclination to write well at the time of acquiring this skill permanently. What are the misspellings of the students at the Department of Primary School Education within their writing activities, and the causes of this phenomenon? The answer of this question will be exemplified and explained. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
