Cursive Handwriting Worksheets

Core Standard

For certain past generations quality cursive handwriting was seen as a symbol of intelligence. This form of penmanship has been around as long as writing itself. Historians cite that this style was originally intended to make writing more efficient by not requiring the lifting of the writing implement. When evaluated writing in cursive is much faster and easier than writing the same sentence in print form. As the 20th century invention of the typewriter and word processors exploded across the globe there is a great deal less of handwriting being used at all. As a result, the importance of learning cursive has taken a back seat in recent years. Some States have completely pulled in from their curriculum. These worksheets will provide students and teachers a good jump off point to work on sharpening up their ability to use cursive.
