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.
Dotted, 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.
The animations are un-intimidating and hand-drawn. Animations are linked below, worksheets are link further down this page.
