Posted on Leave a comment

 

CURSIVE- Always lower case at 90% mastery first! Begin with dry erase- teach cursive first, always get lower case to 90% until upper case. if doesn’t go well see below for block. For CURSIVE: learn the ”c, l, i, n” then you can learn many other letters. Start with marker and dry erase…easier for students. Always practice first with dry erase marker and board! Note: Upper case is not written into this program, but you can be as fancy as you want as long as it resembles others uppercase. (google uppercase- cursive, pick font and stick with it).
