7 Ways To Use Cursive C Worksheets
C is one of the more common letters, so it’s important that children and students learning cursive have a strong grasp on it. Here are some ways to use my Cursive C worksheets to achieve that goal.
7. Tracing Uppercase And Lowercase C’s
The most obvious place to start with learning to write cursive C’s is with tracing the letter in both its uppercase and lowercase form.
C is one of the easier letters, as the uppercase and lowercase forms are the same; the only difference is the size.
Whereas the lowercase C takes up half the guidelines, the uppercase version touches both the top and bottom guidelines.
My worksheets have ample space for both uppercase and lowercase C tracing, but you might want to print multiple copies of specific pages for more tracing practice.
6. Writing Uppercase And Lowercase C’s On Their Own
Once your children or students have a strong grasp on tracing the letter C, it’s time to let them spread their wings and fly – or rather, write the letter C without the tracery.
My worksheets have plenty of space for independent cursive C writing, and since the letter is the same in the uppercase and lowercase form, students can begin with either.
5. Practicing The Swooping Motion For C’s
The letter C in cursive is made with one swooping motion; as such, it might be a good idea for children or students to simply practice that swoop.
So even before you start them on tracing, consider having them put pencil to my worksheets where there are open guidelines and just swoop the pencil tip in the general shape of a C.
Don’t ask them to worry about perfecting the shape; just get them to stay between the guidelines.
A few dozen swoops, and they might be more prepared for the steady, measured tracing of C’s.
4. Linking C’s To Other Letters
Of course, unlike the letter A or I, no C stands alone – it forms part of a greater word.
You can use my worksheets, therefore, to practice linking the letter C to other letters, both vowels, and consonants.
You could even take it a step further by beginning with the letter-linking on my worksheets and then expanding it to include C + every other letter of the alphabet.
And you could also practice writing every other letter of the alphabet + C, too.
3. Writing Words That Begin With C
No study of the cursive letter C would be complete without your children or students practicing writing words that begin with it.
My worksheets contain both three- and four-letter words that start with C, but certainly, you could expand off of those words to include different ones.
Or, if the children get very good at tracing the three- and four-letter cursive words, you could try graduating them up to five or six-letter words that begin with C.
2. Writing Words That Contain The Letter C
For the best practice, consider using the worksheets’ blank guidelines to have the children write words containing the letter C within the word.
Some ideas include “Accent,” “Act,” or “School.”
1. Writing Alliterative Sentences
You could even build off of the worksheets to include alliterative sentences, where many words in the sentence start with a cursive letter C.
“The cat is cold and can’t claw the couch” is one example. Using small, dotted lines, etch out the sentence on some unused guidelines and have the children trace it.
This is a terrific way to improve their writing fluency and offer a challenge for more advanced students.
