Cursive L

If you stumbled upon this page because you were looking for examples and resources on how to correctly write a cursive “l”, you’ll be happy to discover that’s the exact reason we created this page. Cursive writing is being taken out of the classroom curriculum’s at an increasing pace, and even at schools where it’s still taught, less time and resources are being given to cursive writing than in the past. This results in an increasing number of children not learning cursive at all while many others are not spending the time needed to become 100 percent proficient at writing cursive letters. It’s with that in mind we created some online cursive writing resources for free to help teachers and homeschooling parents teach cursive writing to their students and kids. This specific page teaches how to write a cursive “l” but if you’re looking for how to write any other cursive letter (lowercase or capital), we have similar free online cursive letter resources linked in the sidebar.

When people first want to learn cursive, they are oftentimes unaware that there is are a variety of different cursive fonts and styles.

Secondly, it’s one of the more basic cursive fonts which gives a good base knowledge in cursive writing. We’ll be using D’Nealian cursive to teach how to write the cursive “l” on this page.
