Please practice your cursive each night at home. Use this picture to help you.

This picture shows you the direction to move your pencil.

And this one does too.

I will work with you as much as possible at school, but it is still important to practice at home too.

Left handed people will hold their papers and pencils differently.

The more you practice, the better you will get. You'll also find your own personal style.

This little ditty is sung to the tune of Jingle Bells and helps us focus on our writing tasks.
