Donna Young's Cursive Handwriting Lessons - Cursive Z

I made these cursive handwriting practice sheets with the letter style shown in the images below.

The Uppercase Letters
Cursive Z

The Lowercase Letters
Cursive Z

The worksheets are in two groups - "All Tracing" and "Less Tracing". The Ongoing worksheets that I add once in a while to this page have, more or less, one line of tracing and one line of no tracing, .

On the "All Tracing" sheets, the words and letters are "faded" so that your children can trace them.

The "Less Tracing" sheets will have blank spaces for your children to write the words on their own.

I have two penmanship worksheets featuring the letters A & D. The worksheets have the same blue and pink lined background and two-lessons per sheet format. Below are the completed worksheets.

Cursive Handwriting Warm-Up

cursive warmupThere are 3 warm-up printables, each one has two sections. They are not meant to "go with" any particular cursive style, they are just warm-ups. One | Two | Three
Note, One and Two are the same except that sheet two has more "try on your own" space.

More Sets in the Style "Cursive Z"

See pages:Donna's Cursive AnimationsConnecting Cursive Capitals and Practice Writing Words in Cursive Handwriting. The cursive animations that begin on this page Donna Young's Cursive Animations are also "Cursive Z."

How I Made the Worksheets

I have been asked quite a few times over the years, "How did I make the handwriting sheets." I made the cursive worksheets on this page with a font and a drawing program. The letters in the font, while cursive, did not join and so when I placed a letter in the drawing program, I altered it to join with the next letter. Each worksheet took about an hour to make.
