August in Cursive

Writing August in cursive is fairly simple.  I’m going to give instructions for how to write August in cursive in more detail, but first I want all of you to take a look at the image below and see if you can figure out what is wrong with it.

August in cursive

Have you figured it out yet?  If not, here’s the answer: The letter A should be capitalized in the word August.  Any month or day of the week should always start with a capital letter when you are writing them, whether they are being written in cursive or not.

So take a look at the image again and this time picture it with a capital cursive A.  The capital cursive A is very similar to the lower case a.  It flows into the cursive u the same way.  When you get to the letter g you don’t have to make it dip down quite as far as is pictured above.  When you finish writing the word August the last thing you will need to do will be to cross your letter t.

Practice writing the word August in cursive five times.  Then back up to January and go through each month until you get back to August.  See if you can write August at that point without looking at any charts or pictures for help.  If you get it write you will be ready to move on to September in cursive.
