Importance of Cursive Some may wonder why students should learn to write in cursive in the age of tablets and iPhones. While electronic devices have added an element of convenience to the writing process, evidence is mounting that putting pen to paper has benefits that typing cannot replace.
Once you have all of those things, you will be one step closer to learning how to write cursive letters. Getting Started The first thing you will need to do is make sure that you warm up before you make your first attempt at writing cursive letters.
Wikipedia Grab your practice sheet and then just trace a few upward lines. Start from the bottom line on your practice sheet and do an upward stroke until you reach the top line on the sheet.
Again, do two or three of these. Then, you should be ready to start with the lowercase alphabet. Before you begin, take a look at the cursive script alphabet, and analyze the necessary strokes you will need in order to write each and every letter in them: Upward Lowercase Letters It is always a good idea to start with the upward stroke lowercase letters.
In cursive script all the following letters begin with an upward stroke: The difference is that some of them go all the way up to the top line, while others only go up to the dashed line.
The letter f goes down below the bottom line. Most lowercase letters need more than just one stroke, but for some letters, all strokes are upward while for others there will be a combination of upward and downward strokes.
Just take your time and practice as much as you can with a pencil. You will most surely find that some letters will come a lot easier to you while others, more complex ones, will be harder. Wikipedia The best lowercase letter, to begin with, is the letter u. This is the simplest letter to write in cursive of them all.
Just make a downward stroke to the dashed line, then go down to the bottom line, curving slightly before you reach it, then go back up and when you reach the dashed line go down leaving a little curl on the bottom line. Write the letter u several times until you get the hang of it. The letters I, j, m, n, r, v, w, and y are just variations of the letter u so learning how to do a cursive lowercase u will come in very handy later.
Once you feel confident with u, take things up a notch and attempt h. The first upward stroke should reach the top line. Then, you should arc to the left and go down all the way to the bottom line. Then arc up but just to the dashed line, finally a downward stroke to the bottom line and a slight curl.
Again, practice h until you get the hang of it. The letters b, f, k are very similar to it. So, once you feel comfortable with u and h you should try the others that are similar to them.
