Pre-Cursive Practice Lines

Learning cursive is an important step in an elementary schooler’s academic career.

Studies have shown that students who are taught both script and print writing do better on reading tests, and that cursive writing uses a unique part of the brain.

Before diving head first into teaching kids to read and write in cursive, it’s a great idea to start practicing lines to get the feel for the hand motions and get used to keeping the pencil on the paper rather than picking it up for each new letter.

These would be great to use with dry-erase markers once laminated! That way they can be re-used each year!
