7 Ways To Use Cursive G Worksheets
G is a tricky letter to learn in cursive, so your students will need lots of practice. My Cursive G worksheets can be used a number of ways to help with that process.
7. Practicing The Pencil Movement For Uppercase And Lowercase G
Have your students practice the movements for uppercase and lowercase G even before they begin to trace.
To do that, find open guideline space on one of my worksheets and have them practice the opening motion of uppercase G by moving the pencil upward and creating a loop.
Just have them do that for a line or two. Then, add in the point and swoop downward. When they have mastered that, have them finish with the point and hook to the right.
For the lowercase G, have them practice making a slanted oval for a line or two; then have them finish it off with a downward loop and upward line.
The point isn’t perfection – it’s just to get them accustomed to the motions their pencils will be making. If they can stay in the lines, all to the better, but it’s not necessary.
6. Tracing Uppercase And Lowercase G
Once students have mastered the shapes and motions of uppercase and lowercase G, they could then begin to trace them.
Tracing is where the students will begin to understand how G fits within the guidelines, like the uppercase G touching both the bottom and top lines.
They’ll practice the lowercase G reaching only halfway and then swooping down halfway, too.
You may want to print out multiple worksheets for the children so that they can fully master the tracing of uppercase and lowercase G; then they’ll have multiple pages for independent writing, too.
5. Writing Uppercase And Lowercase G Independently
Once students have practiced tracing enough, you’ll want to move them onto writing uppercase and lowercase G independently.
My worksheets provide ample free guideline space for this, and if you need more guidelines, you can simply print more or make copies.
There are worksheets for uppercase G and lowercase G separately, as well as a worksheet where the students can practice the letter together.
4. Tracing Three- And Four-Letter G Words
It can be helpful for students to create words that begin with G, both to practice linking letters from G, and to aid with reading, spelling and memorization.
That’s why I’ve got several sheets devoted to three- and four-letter words that begin with G for your students to trace.
As a challenge, you could also have them attempt to write them independently or make your own five or six letter words that begin with G, such as “Gable” or “Galore.”
3. Linking Lowercase G’s In A Row
On one of the worksheets with empty guideline space, you could create your own dotted-line set of lowercase G’s that are connected and make copies.
Then, have the children trace your linked G’s before writing them independently.
2. Tracing Words That Contain G In Them
Similarly, you could also have the children practice writing words that contain G, so that they understand not just how G connects to other letters, but how other letters connect to G.
Words such as “Gadget” or “Gangle” or Giggle” (with the double G!) would all be excellent examples.
1. Tracing Alliterative Cursive G Sentences
Why not use blank guideline space to create traceable alliterative cursive G sentences?
A few examples include “Greg greets his grandma with great gusto”; or “Gina gets going to the grocery store.”
These sentences not only feature G prominently, while the children are tracing them they are building concentration, spelling skills and memory retention.
