Cursive v

If you’ve been searching online trying to find the proper way to write a cursive “v” that’s exactly the information this page offers. You can find information on how to properly write all the lowercase and capital cursive letters of the alphabet on this website, and this page focuses exclusively on how to write a cursive “v”. As more and more schools decide to reduce the amount of time they spend teaching students how to write cursive letters, online resources are becoming more important to fill in the educational gap. This is especially true for students where the schools have decided to completely eliminate the cursive writing curriculum. The entire idea for this website was based on giving quality resources to those who want or need to properly write cursive or need extra practice to master certain cursive letters.

Some of the more common reasons people end up on this page are as follows. There are quite a few teachers who have students who need extra help with the cursive “v” and this page supplies both a video and worksheet that can be quite helpful to give them more practice. There are also quite a few homeschool parents that need resources to help teach their kids how to correctly write a cursive “v” which this page can help provide. Then there are individuals who are simply curious as to the proper way to write a cursive “v” or are attempting to learn cursive writing on their own. No matter the reason you ultimately came here, there are two main resources you can use to help you learn to write a cursive “v”. There’s a video that shows the proper way to write it and also gives hints about common mistakes to avoid that beginners sometimes make when learning to write it. The other is a cursive “v” worksheet that will allow you to trace and practice writing the letter.

For full disclosure, the type of font we use to teach how to write a cursive “v” (and all letters on this website) is D’Nealian cursive. There are a large number of different cursive fonts that exist and none are more correct than any other, but D’Nealian cursive is what’s typically used to teach children at school. The main reason for this is that D’Nealian cursive is a fairly basic cursive font that makes it much easier to master than many of the other fancier cursive fonts. This makes it ideal to use to teach when people are first beginning to learn how to write cursive. If you’re interested in learning some of the fancier cursive fonts, D’Nealian cursive is a great foundational font to learn first, then move onto the others as you become proficient at it.

How to Write a Lowercase Cursive “v”

While the cursive “v” isn’t the most difficult cursive letter to learn to write, it’s also not the easiest. You’ll need to dedicate a decent amount of time, effort, and practice to properly learn to write it. One of the best ways to learn how to write a cursive “v” is to actually put down your pen or pencil and to first watch a video on the proper way to write it. Watching the video before writing lets you get a good idea of the proper stroke for the letter and gives you some hints on the mistakes you want to avoid when writing it. Taking the time to watch the video a number of times should make writing a cursive “v” much easier when you do begin to write it directly onto a piece of paper.

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

After watching the video on how to write a cursive “v” several times, you should have the confidence to write it on your own. Before trying to do it completely on your own, a good next step is to use a cursive “v” worksheet. The worksheet will provide trace lines so you can make sure you’re writing it correctly and give you quality practice as you first begin to write. You can download and print a cursive “v” worksheet below. It can also be helpful to use the cursive “v” worksheet while watching the video at the same time to make sure that you truly have the stroke of the letter down. The more time you’re willing to use the video and worksheet when first learning, the easier it should be to ultimately master it. Even when you graduate to writing the letter freehand without the help of the worksheet or video, it can make sense to double back and use them again from time to time as you practice to ensure you’re continuing to correctly write it.
