How to Form Cursive Letters of the Alphabet

UK primary schools tend to teach the cursive letter handwriting style after children have learnt the print letter style, as the letters often start in the same position for both. The finishing points for the cursive letter style are however different, allowing the letters to be joined later. Many cursive letters finish with a kick from the base of the letter, while others will form join lines from the top of the letter.

Letter Groupings

Cursive letters of the alphabet are quite often taught in groups rather than in alphabetical order, when teaching handwriting to children, as certain groups use the same, or similar, shape and directional push and pulls of the pencil to form the letter, for instance the letter c has the same start point and anti-clockwise directional movement shape that is needed to create the letters a, d, g, o and though a little more complicated the letter s and e.

Teaching the cursive letter formations in groups can help to limit letter reversals such as b and d. Also by teaching letter groups in certain orders enables children to write whole words, which have meaning to them, and this in turn encourages them to write more. For this reason we have grouped the letter animations and worksheets in the same groups that many primary schools will introduce them.
