Write November in Cursive

When you are learning to write the months in cursive, November can be one of the toughest ones to learn.  Take a look at the image below.

November in cursive

To draw the word November in cursive you need to start with the capital N, flow into the lower case o, follow through with the v, to the e, the m, come up above the middle line but not all the way to the top with your lower case b, swing back through with the e, and finish with an r that curves back up to the middle line at the end.

Since November has a “v”, an “m”, and a “b”, I would consider it the hardest month to write in cursive.  To master writing this word in cursive the best way to do it is look at the image above and write it over and over again.  Practice makes perfect.

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.

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.


How to Write May in Cursive

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.
