This is the introduction to cursive that I use for my third graders. The detailed hints help students form their letters correctly, drawing their attention to the shape, height, and direction of the various strokes.
I have grouped the letters by shape, and I introduce one shape at a time to give students ample time to practice before moving on to the next level.
I make sure that all the practice words use only letters that have already been introduced so that students can feel confident in their writing, and so that you don't have to correct habits that result from students guessing at how to form letters.
