Cursive V

How to write a V in cursive:

capital cursiv V

The cursive V in upper case is very similar to the standard English upper case V.  The only difference is the loop.  Begin by making a small loop and then draw a slanted line down to the bottom line.  Then draw a slanted line in the opposite direction to the top line.  The capital V is one of the cursive letters in the cursive alphabet that stands alone and does not connect to the next letter in the word.

Unlike the capital V, the lower case v in cursive doesn’t really look like the standard English lower case v.

To draw a lower case cursive v start at the bottom line and make a curved line up to the middle line and back down again.  Then continue the curved line in an opposite fashion back up to the middle line.  Finaly, make a small hook down and back up to the middle line again.  Reference the picture of the cursive lower case v above.  This letter is a little tricky so you will want to practice it more than some of the other easier ones we’ve been learning.  Tomorrow, we will learn how to write a W in cursive.

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.
