7 Ways To Use Cursive U Worksheets
When your students are set to practice cursive U, consider using my worksheets and doing any of these even exercises to help them learn and grow.
7. Tracing Uppercase And Lowercase U
Uppercase and lowercase U in cursive aren’t actually all that different than in print – just some extra flourishes here and there.
So, tracing the letter shouldn’t come as too difficult a task for students, and my worksheets have lots of exercise space for them to practice.
In fact, I have three worksheets devoted to tracing cursive U’s – one specifically for lowercase, one for uppercase, and one that features both uppercase and lowercase right next to each other.
In fact, for the latter, you could even print out a sheet and extend the dotted line so that the uppercase and lowercase U are connected (then make copies for your students).
6. Writing Uppercase And Lowercase U Independently
Once students have traced and feel confident enough to write uppercase and lowercase U independently, they can do it right on the same worksheets where they traced.
There is ample blank guideline space for students to put everything they have practiced through tracing to good use by writing uppercase and lowercase cursive U’s independently.
You might want to print out multiple sheets per student, too, to maximize the space for writing.
5. Linking Lowercase U To Itself
A good exercise for students is for them to practice tracing lowercase U linked to itself.
You can create your own worksheet of sorts by using blank guideline space on one of my worksheets and inking in a line of dotted-line lowercase U’s.
Then copy that sheet and pass it out to your students.
If they’re feeling confident enough, after tracing, they can attempt to actually write linked lowercase U’s independently.
4. Linking Uppercase And Lowercase U To Other Letters
I have one worksheet devoted to linking lowercase U to other letters, but you could use blank guideline space to expand on this theme.
For example, you could create a tracing worksheet that links U, both uppercase and lowercase, to every letter of the alphabet.
You could also create a worksheet that links every other letter of the alphabet to a cursive U.
After all, it’s just as important for students to learn how to connect letters to U as it is for them to learn how to connect letters from U.
3. Tracing Words That Begin With U
I have two worksheets that focus on tracing three- and four-letter cursive words that begin with U, which is great practice for students learning the letter.
You could also use blank guideline space to create your own traceable words, whether it’s five-, six- or seven-letter words or words that begin with uppercase U.
You could use words such as “Unique,” “Undergo,” or “Umbrella,” both in lowercase and uppercase.
2. Tracing Words That Contain U
As I mentioned, it’s important for students to learn how to connect other letters to U, not just from it, so consider using blank guideline space to create traceables of words that contain U.
Words like “Puppy,” “Your,” “Full,” and “Club” would all be ideal.
Not only does it help students practice writing cursive U in everyday words, but the tracing also helps improve eye/hand coordination and memory retention (and thus, spelling).
1. Tracing Alliterative U Cursive Sentences
Using blank guideline space, create your own traceable alliterative cursive U sentences.
One such example might be, “Ursula used to undertake unique umbrage.”
Or “Ulysses is uniting umpires to the utmost.”
While the students might not quite understand the sentences, they will nonetheless get plenty of practice writing U in both uppercase and lowercase forms.
