There’s been a trend of cursive being taught less to students at school. It wasn’t that long ago that every student in the US learned how to write in cursive, but that’s starting to change. While most schools still teach cursive writing, some schools have started to reduce the number of hours it’s taught. A few schools have gone so far as to completely eliminate it from the curriculum. This trend has made it even more vital for there to be free online resources that help teach cursive writing. It’s with this in mind that Cursive Letters was created, with this page focusing on how to write a cursive capital Y.
The good news for those wanting to learn how to write a cursive capital Y is that it isn’t one of the more difficult cursive letters to master. The bad news is it’s also not one of the easier cursive letters to learn. With the cursive Y falling somewhere in the middle on the scale of difficulty to master, you’ll need to spend some time to master it, but with a good effort, it shouldn’t be too difficult to do so. To help you along with this educational journey, we provide two important resources to help you with your learning. The first is a video that instructs the proper way to write a cursive Y while also noting the mistakes you need to avoid when first learning to write this letter. The second resource is a cursive capital Y worksheet. The cursive Y worksheet has example letters you’re able to trace so you can master exactly how it should look when writing it on your own. Both the video and worksheet are done in D’Nealian cursive since that’s the cursive font typically taught to students in the US.

It’ll also point to the little mistakes that students often make when writing this letter so you know to avoid them even before you begin to write. The more time you can spend studying the video and the proper way to write a capital Y in cursive, the better prepared you’ll be when you actually sit down to write it.

After simply watching the video, the next step is to watch the video while also using a cursive capital Y worksheet. You can download and print the cursive Y worksheet below.

Continue to use the worksheet with the video until you are confident you can write the cursive capital Y without the help of the video or worksheet. Once you reach this point, you’re ready to practice on your own whenever you have a free moment, but never forget to refer back to the worksheet and video from time to time to make sure you continue to properly write it.
