cursive writing

This language lesson is designed for 6 to 12-year-old children to write English alphabets b and h in cursive.

Handwriting practice helps in strengthening the finger muscles and developing fine motor skills. It also helps the child to develop and practice hand-eye coordination. This cursive writing lesson helps in improving the child’s reading and writing ability. 

Writing a lower case English alphabet in cursive writing is done by forming a Stroke. Therefore, we learn to write cursive letters according to the stroke family. 

Lower case letters are also known as close letters. Writing lower case letters starts by leaving a small gap.
