Cursive Name Tracing Worksheet

Practice writing in cursive with the D`Nealian font with simple doodle borders.

Cursive writing is an old-school skill that kids should learn, but whether they’re taught it varies depending on where you live. Whether you want to do some cursive handwriting practice for school or teach it at home, this free customizable cursive name tracing worksheet can really help.

You can even change the font, color, and border!

Free Cursive Name Tracing Worksheet

Most kids love learning to write their names, which is great because it’s also one of the most important things they need to learn early on. And what better first full word to practice in cursive? 

Tips for Cursive Writing Practice:

What Font to Use For Cursive Writing Worksheets?

We use the D’Nealian font as our default for cursive because it has well formed, easy to read handwriting letters.

If kids are still new to handwriting, it can be helpful to choose the font with arrow guides so they form cursive letters correctly. Once the basics are down, the dotted version of the font works well.

Another fun idea is to practice hand lettering with this free cursive name tracing worksheet. Use the dotted or solid font and a thick marker to practice hand lettering techniques. 

Keep Practicing Cursive Writing

The more kids practice writing in cursive the more they develop muscle memory and it becomes second nature!

Instructions For Teaching Cursive Writing

Easy cursive writing instructions.

Teaching cursive writing can be easy if you make it an adventure. Basically there are six strokes to connect letters:

See more instructions below.

If your elementary school students already know how to write in manuscript, encourage them that writing in cursive is as easy as connecting the letters together. The rest is style.

Write the manuscript alphabet on the board or a piece of paper, or some part of it. Then make the connections both on the board and in their minds by drawing the connecting strokes.

Truly, that's most of writing in cursive.

How To Write Cursive For Beginners

With beginners or those who struggle, another idea for teaching cursive handwriting is to drag your lines on the board as you move to write the next letter in a word. Say the letter or its sound as you write the letters naming the strokes you're using.

Students like seeing that 

What was that? 

Practicing cursive offers an "Aha!" moment for some reluctant readers. When they see the break between the words in their own handwriting, they often make a better association for where words start and where they end in their reading, certainly in their handwriting. :-)

Cursive Writing Instructions For Adults

Cursive writing instructions for adults is the same as for children. A beginner is a beginner.

Learning how to write in cursive as an adult can actually be easier, especiall if you've been printing with an italic hand , meaning your letters already slant as if for cursive script.

Best advice? Long story short?

Connect the letters as you write. 

You can learn style as you practice writing in cursive hand.

For adults who will be using these cursive script sheets print the pages "two-up" so that you can use the smaller font and less paper.

No sense trudging through larger handwriting to learn cursive.

It is the same for basic cursive practice sheets for older kids and high school students.  Keep it short and sweet.

1. The Alphabet In Cursive

Hi! I recommend products that I think will help you and your children. If you buy through my links I may earn ad commissions at  NO  extra cost to you. See my  FTC Disclosure .

The Writing Road To Reading Book by Romalda Spalding and Mary North

Basically, there are five cursive strokes to add to the manuscript letters.

Romalda Spalding has an excellent description in her book at Amazon,   The Writing Road to Reading . In a way, this is my favorite cursive writing book as she makes cursive seem easy.

The whole lesson is only six pages and can be taught in just a few classes. Truly, I've seen even small children learn to write in cursive in just two weeks using what she wrote.

She taught several general rules like "All letters sit on the base line." Then she writes that you should teach the terms for the five strokes as you show how to connect the letters:

You can read more about using her book for teaching reading by teaching writing .

Usually, the capital letters do not connect with the rest of a word, yet these capitals letters can be connected to the rest of a word:

Once your students have learned both upper and lower case cursive, they can stay sharp practicing this cursive sentence with all letters present:

1.B. Cursive Alphabet: Lower Case ABC Cursive Handwriting Alphabet - 5 Practice Pages

Why put upper case letters first? Children often learn best what they learn first.

Since most cursive letter writing is lower case and since most cursive words practice is lower case, it is a good idea to practice these cursive letters first.

See these worksheets for the lower case alphabet in cursive:

2. free cursive writing worksheets using difficult cursive strokes.

Enter: The short dip.

Many times it's hardest for children to get the idea of connecting letters that use the short dip or a connecting loop at the midpoint or midline. 

Staying at the mid-line is the trick, and these practice cursive worksheets are the answer. 

Since b and o each end at the mid-line, they are difficult letter combinations. Practicing letter combinations with this stroke makes the letters easier to form in everyday handwriting in a continuous stretch of letters.

Use these free cursive writing worksheets to show your students how to write cursive letters that end with a short dip at the midpoint.

See the individual pages first or download the group of five all at once at the link below the individual pages (2.F.).

10 Printable Handwriting Worksheets to Practice Cursive

The best website to download free handwriting worksheets for practicing cursive. Don't let the art of handwriting die out!

Handwriting is becoming a lost art. Many schools in the United States don't teach it anymore. And maybe you've noticed your handwriting getting sloppy over the years.
