In the last cursive lesson we learned how to write November in cursive.
For this lesson, we will learn how to write the word Thanksgiving in cursive.
how to write Thanksgiving using the cursive alphabet
To write Thanksgiving in cursive you need to follow the same rules you do with all holidays. The first letter of Thanksgiving should use a capital T. The capital T will not be connected to the lower case h. After that, all letters will flow and be connected together. The lower case k should extend above the middle line but not all the way to the top line. Both lower case gees should drop below the bottom line down to the line below that. Your writing utensil shouldn’t come off the page until you are ready to dot the i’s. Practice this over and over until you are really good at it. Alternate writing the words November and Thanksgiving in cursive.
Here’s how to write September in cursive.
Writing September in cursive can be difficult for some people just learning their cursive letters. Like all other months, the first letter should always be capitalized. So you will want to start by drawing a capital S. The “S” is one of the upper case letters that does not attach to the second letter in the word. It ends on the outside left area of where you began drawing the letter. So draw your upper case S and then start at the bottom line for your lowercase cursive e and then connect each additional letter for the entire word September. Finish the word September by crossing your lower case “t” at the end. The only letter that should dip below the bottom line is the lower case “p”. As always, practice makes perfect so keep writing the full word September over and over until you achieve perfect cursive writing.
Writing June and July in cursive is very easy compared to the other months. This is because there are only four letters. The capital J in cursive can throw some people for a loop but it’s actually one of the easier capital letters to flow into the remaining lowercase letters. If you can spell June in cursive you should have no problem writing July in cursive as well. Here’s an image of both months in cursive as a reference to go by.
Next month we will tackle how to write August in cursive. That one will be a little trickier to learn.
May is the shortest of all months with only three letters. Because of that, it is the easiest month to write in cursive. As with all months, the first letter needs to be capitalized. You can refer to the cursive chart to see how to draw a capital M. You need to connect your capital “M” to the “a” in a flowing motion. Then you connect your cursive “a” to your cursive “y” and loop back to the middle line. This should all happen in an even flowing motion and your pen or pencil shouldn’t leave the paper until you are finished with the entire word. Below is a picture of the word May in cursive.
Practive writing May in cursive over and over until you get comfortable with it. June is the next month on the calendar, and coincidentally it is one of the shortest and easiest months to write in cursive as well.
