Seven Cursive Worksheets You Can Use Right Now

April 25, 2018

I have decided make and share some of my own scanned cursive worksheets (shared below).  The first seven (in order) will appear in this post. Each worksheet builds on the ones before it, using only the letters in the current and earlier worksheets.

Worksheet 1     c, a, d (all lower case)

Worksheet 2     C, A, D (all upper case)

Worksheet 3     e, l (lower case) and E, L (upper case)

Worksheet 4     i, j (lower case), and J, I (upper case)

Worksheet 5      m, n (lower case) and M, N (upper case)

Worksheet 6      o, u (lower case) and O, U (upper case)

Worksheet 7     s (lower case) and S (upper case)

I am now in the process of writing up the remaining worksheets and will post them as they become ready.

These worksheets are presented in an order which enables students to  begin writing in cursive successfully, almost from the very first day.   I take the approach of teaching BOTH the small and capital forms of each alphabet letter, and immediately giving practice words using both.  By mastering both forms, students immediately gain confidence in writing real words, friends’ names,  and sentences.

On each worksheet (at the bottom) I have given permission for individual teachers and parents to print and photocopy the worksheets for use with their own students.  However, I do not give permission for them to be sold, or shared directly with others, without taking them from this website.

t in the coming few weeks I will post the rest of the worksheets here, as they become ready.

I will be writing a series of posts with complete directions about how to use them.   Just giving the worksheets to students to trace, without proper instruction first, will not produce the desired result.  So the coming instructions will be important.

I’d be interested to know in the comments if you’ve found these worksheets helpful.  Eventually I plan to compile all these worksheets and instructions into a book.
