Hi. I’m Denise. Thank you for watching my video. Today I’m going to talk about writing cursive letters. The first thing to keep in mind is that there are many styles of writing cursive letters. Today I’m going to show you a fairly traditional style of writing. One of the differences among the styles is the amount of embellishment on each letter. By embellishment, I mean the extra loops or the extra fancy pieces that are added to some letters. I’ll give you an example.
This is a letter M. It has a loop right here on the top left. This is also a letter M. It does not have the loop, so when I said embellishment, I meant that some styles have the extra loop here. You can choose whichever style you want. I will try to show you a little bit of both while I’m writing, mostly a more traditional style, though, that does have loops.
So, the first thing to keep in mind is that there are different styles. The second thing to keep in mind is that when we write cursive letters, we slant our letters to the right. So, if you look at these letters, they’re both slanted to the right from the bottom left to the top right. Okay. We slant this way.
Okay. Let’s get started. The capital A looks a lot like the lowercase printed A. Start at the top, just a little bit below the top. Curve around and go back up to meet this spot, back down and we make this little curve on the bottom. All cursive letters have a little tail on them.
Cursive letters when we write words are connected to the next letter to form the word, so the cursive letters have a little tail-like piece at the end that helps us to connect to the next letter. Not every letter can be connected, but we still, it is still important to have these little bits at the end, the little tail at the end. That’s different from having the loop at the top, so I’ll show you and talk about it as we go on. Okay.
The letter B. We start low. Go up. Come straight down, and remember I’m always slanting. Come straight down. Go back up the same line. Go around to make the first loop and in a traditional style, we’ll loop around here and come down to make the second loop. Come up a little bit and we go in a bit like that. Now a less traditional style would not have this loop. We still go up, down, up for the top loop and instead of making a loop right here in the middle, I’ll just come back down and make the bottom, and then again I go in this little piece here. That’s a capital B.
Capital C. I’m going to start at the top and I’m going to make a loop on this one. Capital C. Actually this should come down to the line.
Capital D starts at the top, comes down and makes a loop here at the bottom and curve up to the top and it comes in like that. One without this extra loop would look like this. Come down and maybe go around like that. But still, notice that the D it’s rounded and comes in at the top. Even when I did this one with the loop, I went back up and I curved around.
Okay. For the letter E, I’m going to make a loop, go around and loop again in the middle of the line. Come down and go like that. Okay. Without this extra loop, it would look something like this. Some people might make it without this loop also.
Okay. The letter F starts at the top and we make a little loop and notice it curves like that. That’s the top of our F. And we come down. I’m still on a slant. Curve up, and then back and cross over the F. Remember a printed F looks like this, so it has two lines. But the cursive F, we have the top. That’s our top of the F. This part that hooks over, that’s the second line. Okay, so we make the top, lift the pen, go back to the middle, come down and up and cross over. Okay?
The letter G, we start at the bottom of the line. We go up, ...
