Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 13 pages | Grades: 3 - 5

Display this set of 26 posters with upper and lowercase cursive letters and directional markings to help students easily write the cursive alphabet.

✍️ Integrate Upper and Lowercase Cursive Letters in Your Lessons

With the advancement of technology, the world expected cursive to get left behind, a dying artform replaced by typing and texting. 

However, research suggests cursive handwriting stimulates fine motor skills while improving students’ reading and writing abilities! Cursive also helps students overcome the challenges of dyslexia. (Time)

Each poster in this set includes directional markings showing the proper stroke order needed to form each capital and lowercase letter. 

And because cursive letters can look dramatically different than the print script students are used to, each poster includes an accompanying graphic to help with cursive letter association.
