7 Ways To Use Cursive N Worksheets
When your students are ready to learn cursive N, try using my worksheets in these seven ways to help them practice and make perfect.
7. Practicing The Motions For Uppercase And Lowercase N
It can be quite helpful, before tracing or writing independently, for students to instead practice simply making the shapes that constitute uppercase and lowercase cursive N’s.
Have the children begin by making the pencil movement for the first curve and then drawing the pencil down.
Then add to that with the upward motion, the hump of the N, and the downward movement, ending with the “tail” of the N.
Have them practice these motions separately and then all together, but don’t let them worry about shape or fitting the letter into the guidelines.
This is about building muscle memory and just getting them used to the movements their pencils will make to write N.
6. Tracing Uppercase And Lowercase N
When the students are ready to trace, my worksheets will come in mightily handy.
I have worksheets dedicated solely to uppercase cursive N, solely to lowercase N, and then one with uppercase and lowercase N together.
I’d recommend starting with one of the former, moving to the next, and then having them practice the latter, putting the letters together.
You’ll want to hold onto those worksheets, though, for what’s to come next.
5. Writing Uppercase And Lowercase N Independently
After the students have built up enough skill with tracing, they can move on to writing the letter N independently.
And they can do that on the same worksheets that they traced, as there is ample empty guideline space underneath for them to practice.
You might want to print out multiple copies of each sheet per student in anticipation of their practicing needs.
4. Tracing Lowercase Cursive N Linked To Other Letters
I have a worksheet that links lowercase N to other letters of the alphabet, but you could go one better and use some of the blank guideline space to create more.
Using dotted lines, write out traceable N linked to all the vowels, or even every other letter of the alphabet, and make copies for all your students.
3. Tracing Three- And Four-Letter Words That Begin With Lowercase N
My worksheets cover three- and four-letter words that begin with N, but you could also use some of the blank guideline space to create your own traceable words.
Further, you could include words with uppercase N, as it’s important for students to understand how to link the uppercase version of the letter to other letters, as well.
2. Tracing Other Letters Linked To Lowercase N
You might also use some of the blank guideline space to create traceables of other letters of the alphabet connected to N.
Because not every usage of the letter N will come first, it’s important that students know and understand how to link other letters to it.
You could use words such as “Nine,” “Cannon,” “Along,” or “Until.”
Challenge students first to trace the other words and then to write them on their own.
1. Tracing Alliterative Cursive N Sentences
Create your own alliterative cursive N sentences using the blank guideline space on one of the worksheets.
Write in dotted-line fashion something along the lines of “Nina is nice to nearly no one” or “Nick is new to naval navigation.”
Have the students trace it a few times, as it improves their muscle memory and eye-hand coordination and could help improve their memory and spelling.
