Are you teaching your kids cursive? I think it is still really important for kids to learn it. I’ll tell you a few reasons why in a minute. I currently have two kids working on learning/perfecting their cursive letters and wanted them to have more practice than what was offered in their workbooks. We have been using Zaner-Bloser for handwriting & like it a lot. However, I feel like they just really need lots of practice with their cursive. So, I decided to make some printable cursive alphabet worksheets. (So, why not make it for all of you lovely people to use, too?) Now I can print them off anytime my kids need a little more work on any of their letters.
These cursive alphabet worksheets have all of the letters with a page for each one. Each page has two lines of the capital letter and two lines of the lower-case letter.

Why I Think We Should Still Teach Cursive:
- It is good for our brains! Cursive improves cognitive development, motor skills and even reading comprehension!
- So kids will know how to sign their name. Signatures are required on things all the time. Everyone needs to know how to write theirs!
- It connects us to our past. All of the old historical papers and documents were written in cursive. Even letters from parents and grandparents are often written in cursive. Learning to read and write it will help people to be able to read and understand these things.
- It helps people with learning disorders or brain injuries. Writing and reading cursive uses a different part of the brain. Because of this it makes it possible for people with dyslexia or other disabilities to still be able to read or write proficiently.
- Cursive is so pretty! I love how it looks ~ it can truly be an art form!
- It is easier for some people. My son has terrible handwriting. However, when he writes in cursive, it is much easier to read. I think some people just prefer it.
