Cursive m

For anyone who’s interested in learning to write a cursive “m”, you’ve arrived at the correct place on the Internet. This page has been created explicitly to help those who are interested in learning how to write a cursive “m” or those who are looking for quality resources to help their children or students to do so. With less time being spent in the classroom helping students learn cursive writing at school, and in some cases with the cursive writing curriculum being completely removed, free online cursive resources have become important to fill in these gaps. If you happen to be a teacher looking for cursive worksheets to help your students, homeschool parents wanting to show a video on the proper way to write a cursive “m”, or simply someone who is interested in learning how to write the cursive alphabet, we have you covered.

Most schools in the US teach D’Nealian cursive. There are many other cursive fonts that exist and all of these are the correct way to write cursive, but since D’Nealian cursive is what most people think when they hear the word “cursive”, that’s what we’ll use here as well. The advantage of D’Nealian cursive is that it’s a basic cursive that gives a good foundation so that you can effectively learn fancier cursive fonts once you have learned the basics of the D’Nealian cursive style. This page is devoted to how to write a cursive “m”.

How to Write a Lowercase Cursive “m”

Learning to write a cursive “m” is somewhere in the middle when it comes to the difficulty of writing different cursive letters. That’s to say, it’s not the easiest or the hardest but falls somewhere in the middle in its difficulty to write. This means you may have to spend a little more time and effort on the cursive “m” than you do with some of the easier cursive letters, but with a bit of determination, it shouldn’t be overly difficult to master. To make learning this letter as easy as possible, it makes sense to watch a video showing the correct way to write a cursive “m” before attempting to write the “m” yourself. This will give you the opportunity to learn the correct stroke and give you insights into where beginners sometimes make mistakes when they first learn to write a cursive “m”. So, before you begin writing on your own, take the time to watch the video.

Video showing how to write the Lowercase letter "m" in cursive

Once you have studied the video and understand where the common mistakes are made with the cursive “m”, you’re ready to begin trying to write it yourself. While you can try to write it completely on your own, most people find it helpful to fist begin by writing it along with the video. If you’re pretty confident you can master this letter, you can grab a notebook or other writing paper and follow along with the video. This helps reinforce the proper way to write a cursive “m” so that when you do begin doing it on your own, you’re writing with the proper technique. It shouldn’t take too long for you to have the confidence to write a cursive “m” without any help from the video.

For those who like to have structure when first learning, you may want to download and print a cursive “m” worksheet rather than using regular paper. This gives the advantage of having dotted lines that you can use while you follow along with the video to ensure you’re absolutely writing the cursive “m” with the proper form. These are also excellent to use when you have free time on your own and you want to practice your cursive letter writing. Teachers should find the worksheet valuable for their students to help them get additional practice writing the cursive “m” and parents who homeschool their children will find the worksheets a valuable resource to make sure they learn to correctly write the cursive “m”.
