Cursive U

How to write a cursive U:

upper case cursive U

The upper case cursive U is very similar to the standard English upper case U.  To draw a capital U in cursive begin by making a loop at the top left and then swing a line down and out to the left and then curving back to the right and up to the top.  Then retrace your line back down near the bottom and hook it around to connect to the next letter in the word.

To draw a lower case u in cursive begin with the lead in line which starts at the bottom line and goes up to the right to the mid line.  Then draw a line downward and curve it around and back up, like a standard English lower case u.  Finally, retrace most of your line back down and curve it around, ready to connect to the next letter in your cursive word.

Now that we have discussed how to write a cursive U we have now covered all the vowels in the alphabet.  So this weekend would be a great time for all of you to practice all of your cursive vowels.  Write a cursive A, E, I, O, and U ten times in a row.  Tomorrow we will learn how to draw the cursive V. 


Cursive L

Good morning class.  Today we will learn how to draw the letter L in cursive. In my opinion, L is one of the easiest letters to draw in the cursive alphabet.  Let’s begin with the capital cursive L, otherwise known as an upper case cursive L.

To draw the capital L start at the midline and draw to the right and then up to the top and loop back to the left, all the way to the bottom and then make a loop to the left which swings back to the right and dips below the bottom line.  Take a look at the picture of the capital L above for a reference.  You should draw the cursive L without ever taking your pencil or pen off the paper.  It should be one fluid motion.

Although the upper case L can be difficult for some people, the lower case cursive l is one of the easiest letters to draw in the entire cursive alphabet.  To draw the cursive lower case l you simply start at the bottom line and slant a line up to the right and loop it back down and around.

Tomorrow morning we will move on to the letter M.  Have a great day.
