Teaching cursive to students can be a real challenge, but there is a lot to be gained in the process.
This pack includes a practice page and paragraph for each letter of the alphabet. The paragraphs are about the different animals of the Americas. There is also a cursive letter sheet and a sheet of cursive paper included.
I copy the practice page and the paragraph back to back (on the same sheet of paper). We work together to do the practice page and then the kids rewrite the paragraph on a sheet of cursive paper, often at a later time. You can buy cursive paper or copy the sheets provided. We keep a two pocket, three prong folder with all of the cursive pages inside it – the two sided practice page and paragraph for a letter, then the cursive paper.
We teach cursive letters in this order:
c, a, d, g, q, i, t, p, w, j, e, l, f, h, k, r, s, b, o, v, m, n, y, x, z
A, C, O, U, V, W, X, Y, Z, S, P, R, B H, K, N, M, I, J, F, T, E, L, D, Q, G
