Donna Young's Cursive Handwriting Lessons - Cursive Z
There are 38 cursive handwriting lessons on this page. Each lesson consists of 7 lines for handwriting practice. The handwriting rule measures approximately 9mm in height or just under 3/8 inch. Each printed file contains 2 lessons. The lessons are in color, but can be printed in grayscale if you set the print function to do so.
All Tracing and Less Tracing
The worksheets are in two groups - "All Tracing" and "Less Tracing". The words and letters are "faded" on the "All Tracing" lessons so that your children can trace them. The "Less Tracing" lessons will have blank spaces for your children to write the words on their own.
The Letter Style
I made these cursive handwriting practice sheets with the letter style shown in the images below.
The Uppercase Letters
The Lowercase Letters
12 Cursive Handwriting lessons - All Tracing
Below, the 6 printable files containing the 12 cursive handwriting lessons with the letters and words that are all tracing. If you missed the information about that, all tracing means that every letter is to be traced by the student.
26 Cursive Handwriting lessons - Less Tracing
Below, the 13 printable files containing the "Less Tracing" 26 cursive handwriting lessons. If you missed the information about that, less tracing means that while the lessons will contain letters and words that should be traced, there will be blank areas onto which the student will write the letters and words on their own.
2 Lessons Featuring the Letter A
Lesson 1- Ordinary uppercase A Pratice
Lesson 2 - Similar to cursive warmup, letter a is joined to itself, letter m, and letterc.
Two Lessons Featuring the Letter D
Lesson 1 - Uppercase D is formed in two different ways
Lesson 2 - Uppercase D is practised with mid-drop and lowest drop to connect to letters.
Printable Cursive Handwriting Lesson Paper
Below are two Lesson Paper files that are designed for two lessons. Lesson paper means that I've included areas for the student to write information such as name and date. Occasionally lesson paper will include an image of manuscript or cursive letters. The rule height is the same as the handwriting lessons that are on this page.
See Paper for more choices in blank handwriting paper.
Cursive Handwriting Warm-Up
There are 3 warm-up printables, each one has two sections. They are not meant to "go with" any particular cursive style, they are just warm-ups. Files:
One | Two | Three
Note, One and Two are the same except that sheet two has more "try on your own" space.
