7 Ways To Use Cursive L Worksheets
When it’s time for students to learn cursive L, introduce them to these worksheets, plus seven different uses for improving their faculties with the letter.
7. Practicing The Pencil Movements For Uppercase And Lowercase L
Before you have the children practice writing or even tracing the letter L, consider instead having them practice just the movement of their pencil first.
This means, for uppercase cursive L, instructing them to make the first loop and pull downward for a few lines; then adding the second loop and pull to the right.
For the lowercase L, have them practice making the high loop and flicking their wrist to the right to finish.
You can have them do this on any of the blank guideline space on my worksheets.
And remember, it’s not about staying in the lines or creating the perfect shapes.
It’s about creating the muscle memory for the shapes and getting them used to a very different way of writing.
6. Tracing Uppercase And Lowercase L
Naturally, you will want to move on to tracing at some point, as that provides the basis for perfecting the letter shapes.
My worksheets have lots of tracing opportunities on them for both uppercase and lowercase cursive L. In fact, you can work on both cases separately and then do both on the same worksheet.
You might want to print out multiples for each student. That way, they have plenty of uppercase and lowercase L’s to practice on.
5. Writing Uppercase And Lowercase L Independently
Once students have practiced enough tracing, it’s time for them to move on to writing the letter L, in uppercase and lowercase, independently.
My worksheets have plenty of space for that, both one at a time (uppercase on its own, lowercase on its own) and together.
Have the children practice one, then the other, and then have them attempt the worksheet where they will write the uppercase and lowercase right next to each other.
4. Linking Lowercase L’s To Each Other
Find some empty guideline space on one of the worksheets and create traceable lowercase cursive L’s all linked to each other in a row.
Make copies of that sheet, have students trace the pattern – and then have them do a line or two independently.
There are lots of words that contain double L’s, but more than that, it’s a great way for students to practice their eye-hand coordination.
Further, it’s an opportunity for students to practice restraint – after all, it might be tempting for them to start making loops out of control.
3. Linking Lowercase Cursive L’s To Other Letters
I have a worksheet devoted to linking cursive lowercase L with other letters, but you might carve out some space to create traceable uppercase L linked with those same letters.
In fact, you could even use one of the worksheets with blank guideline space to create more traceables linking L to other letters.
Or, you could create traceables that link other letters to L.
2. Tracing Three- And Four-Letter Words That Begin With L
My two worksheets for tracing three- and four-letter words that begin with L are a terrific jumping-off point for creating five- and six-letter words.
Or you could create traceable words that contain L, so that students can practice linking letters both to L and from it.
1. Tracing Alliterative Cursive L Sentences
Why not create a whole sentence filled with L words for students to trace?
Using blank guideline space and dotted-line letting, write out, “Louis lets Laura listen to his lyrics” or “Lana loves to lick lollipops.”
Make copies and pass them out to your students. If they’re feeling up to the challenge, see if you can’t get them to attempt writing out the sentences without tracing!
