ZB Style - The Letter Gg

Practice Writing the Letter Gg

Two Identical Lessons per Sheet: There are two identical lessons on each printable worksheet. Why are there two identical lessons on each sheet? It seems like a odd idea now and I am having trouble remembering why I decided to make them this way, but I suppose the second lesson could be saved and used a week or two later or given to a second student.

handwriting worksheets for letter gDotted, Hollow, Boxes, and Practice: The letters are either dotted or the letters are hollow. One of the worksheets with dotted letters also have individual letter boxes with a starting dot. Each letter style, dotted or hollow, will have a practice worksheet. The dotted letter worksheets have both tracing and practice worksheets. The hollow letter worksheets have starting dot.

Pencil Lift: Manuscript Gg can be drawn without pencil lifts. Lowercase "g" could have a pencil lift, but it is not necessary unless the instructor requires it. I have an animation for both a one-stroke and a two-stroke lowercase g.
Animations are linked below, worksheets further down this page.

The Letter Height of the Printed Worksheet

"A" is pictured, but represents any worksheet in this set

Below is a photograph of my two copies along with an old yellow ruler. As you can see, the height is just over 1/2 of an inch or 14 mm. The letter size might vary a little from person to person.
