One of the trends taking place at elementary schools across the US is a decrease in the time spent teaching cursive writing to students. In fact, some schools have even decided not to teach cursive at all to their students as part of their academic curriculum. To counter this trend, people who believe that learning cursive is an important part of a student’s learning process have started to provide cursive writing resources online for free to help those who want to learn cursive to be able to do so without it costing any money. If you landed on this page, the resources you’ll find here are to help you learn how to write the cursive capital W.
You’ll find two fundamental resources on this page that can help you learn how to correctly write a cursive capital W. To begin, a cursive capital W video is provided that shows in detail and with commentary the proper way to write a cursive W. The video also highlights the mistakes that those learning to write a cursive W often make so that you can avoid making them yourself. Along with the video, the second fundamental resource is a cursive capital W worksheet. This worksheet will show what a D’Nealian cursive capital W looks like and provides tracing lines so you can write over them to get the feel of the correct way to write it. For both the worksheet and video, D’Nealian cursive is shown because of how widespread it’s used in US schools. Most who have learned how to write cursive in school have learned to write D’Nealian cursive.
