What Type of Cursive Student Do You Have?
If you have kids who are learning how to write in cursive, you might be getting one of these responses.
Some children think that learning cursive handwriting is super cool. These kids are excited and ready to take on the challenge.
Other kids might be indifferent. They might shrug their shoulders and just go with it.
And then you have the resistant kids. You might be fielding questions like, “But, why do I have to learn to write like that? Can’t I just print?” and “This is boring! And I don’t care if my writing doesn’t look like that!”.
I’ve had experience with all of these types with my 5 boys. My oldest boy couldn’t wait to be able to write in cursive. He felt like a grown up using “all these fancy letters”.
My 3rd and 4th boys were indifferent. They’re pretty easy going and did what was expected of them.
My 2nd son (Professor) despised cursive handwriting – at first. He’s left-handed and I had a difficult time teaching how to write. Once he figured out the different cursive strokes and how smoothly the letters could flow, he discovered a new-found appreciation for cursive handwrting.
Xman (my youngest) is another resistant kid. He has large hands and is going through another growth spurt. Xman is finding it hard to coordinate his large hands and pencil with the cursive strokes. He hasn’t put up much of a fight – thank goodness! To thwart a meltdown, I’m preparing a variety of resources to help make cursive writing tolerable (even enjoyable).
I made this free cursive alphabet chart printable set so he can have something to refer to when learning and practicing his handwriting.

Tips and Tricks for Making the Most of Cursive Handwriting Practice
Start simple and allow progress to unfold. You can begin with simple cursive letter strokes.
Look at the cursive alphabet chart printable set with your students. Chat about the letters and compare the cursive letters to print. Talk about the letter formations and cursive strokes. Use our pack of free alphabet cursive worksheets for additional practice.
Trace the cursive letters with your fingers on the paper and in the air.
Use a pencil (or other writing tool) to trace the letters with arrows and dotted lines (page 4).
Next, use a pencil to trace the letters with just dotted lines (page 2).
Finally, use the blank page to practice as many cursive letters as you’d like!
