Cursive WritingAll children develop as individuals. Parents and caregivers should use the age ratings below as a general guideline, taking the abilities, temperament and interests of their children into account. Just like printing, cursive writing is typically not presented in alphabetical order. I've chosen to present the letters in groups that are formed in a similar manner you'll find this is what most schools do. The worksheets build on one another so you'll want to begin with the letter a and add letters in the order listed. It is important to build when it comes to handwriting as the key difference between cursive writing and printing is that the letters flow together connect. Present lower case letters first -- you can quickly begin forming words so that cursive handwriting can be incorporated with other lessons such as spelling and social studies.
Explanation How to Write in Cursive
The key is to learn how to best connect letters in a manner that flows neatly and is legible by anyone happening to read it. Now a days, it is not often that someone will write something by hand. With the widespread popularity of word processors, tablets, cellphones and other devices, it has become commonplace for society to communicate through typed word, rather than handwritten word. In fact, some school boards have even questioned the validity in continuing to teach cursive writing skills to students, opting instead to focus on the development of typing skills and printing. Having said that, there will come time when most of us need to read something that was handwritten or we might have to write something ourselves.
