While cursive isn’t being taught as frequently as it was a generation ago, that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth learning. In fact, it’s actually a skill that can help you stand out a bit in a crowd these days. There are more and more people who don’t know how to read or write cursive letters, but we’re here to help you learn. This particular page is dedicated to helping you learn how to write a cursive “c”.
The first thing to understand about cursive writing is that there isn’t a single correct way to write cursive letters. There are a large number of different cursive fonts that range from basic and simple to difficult and fancy. While this at first may be a bit confusing, it’s actually one of the points that make cursive such a fun writing style to learn. Cursive allows you to create your own personal flair and add it to your writing once you have mastered the basics. With this in mind, we’ll be teaching D’Nealian cursive when practicing the cursive “c” since this is the most commonly taught cursive in US schools.
