7 Ways To Use Cursive V Worksheets
Here are seven ways to use my cursive V worksheets, from making pencil motions for the letter to tracing and writing it independently in various ways.
7. Practicing The Pencil Movement For Uppercase And Lowercase V
Before you start students tracing cursive V’s, it can be helpful to introduce them to the letter by having them practice the pencil movements that they will undertake.
So for the uppercase cursive V, that would include having them make the swoop downward and swoop upward.
For the lowercase, have students practice making the beginning tail, then swoop downward; then add onto it the swoop upward and notched tail to the right.
It’s not about perfection of form or shape; it’s simply about familiarizing the students with the motions their hands, and therefore their pencils, will be making.
They can then work on bringing uniformity to the letter when they move on to tracing.
6. Tracing Uppercase And Lowercase Cursive V
If your students are just starting off learning V in cursive, then I recommend you introduce them to my tracing worksheets.
Tracing is a good first or second step in the process, as it guides the students’ hands and helps form the muscle memory necessary to write independently.
I have three worksheets devoted to tracing the letter V – one for uppercase specifically, one for lowercase specifically, and one that combines both, side by side.
5. Writing Uppercase And Lowercase V Independently
Hopefully, you held onto my worksheets for tracing, because underneath that exercise is plenty of blank guideline space for writing uppercase and lowercase V independently.
Of course, it’s completely up to you how you present the lesson. You could introduce just uppercase, tracing, and writing, then just lowercase, tracing, and writing.
Or you could focus on just tracing uppercase and then lowercase, and then just writing uppercase and lowercase.
4. Linking Uppercase and Lowercase V
On one of my worksheets, you have uppercase and lowercase cursive V’s right next to each other for tracing.
You could add in your own dotted line connecting the two and then make copies of that to pass out to your students.
It’s a good exercise for them to start the process of linking V to other letters, since they will be doing so when they are writing words.
Start off with them tracing the connected letter, then if they have the confidence to do it, encourage them to practice writing it independently, too.
3. Linking Lowercase V To Itself
Using blank guidelines space on one of the worksheets, you could create your own traceable connecting lowercase V to itself.
Again, this is a good warm-up for linking V to other letters. Simply use dotted-line writing to make a row of lowercase V’s all connected and make copies for the students in your class.
Have them trace the line at first (you might want to print multiple copies per student), and then, if they feel confident enough, encourage the kids to write them on their own, too.
2. Linking Uppercase And Lowercase V To Other Letters
I have a worksheet devoted to linking lowercase cursive V’s to other letters, but you could also use blank guideline space to create your own worksheets with similar exercises.
For example, why not make a traceable where the students link uppercase V to other letters? Or a worksheet where the students link uppercase and lowercase V to every letter of the alphabet?
1. Tracing Cursive Words That Begin With V
I have two worksheets for tracing words that begin with V, both three- and four-letter words.
You could use blank guideline space on another sheet to recreate the words but with uppercase V.
Or you could create your own words or make traceables of five- and six-letter words that begin with V, such as “Valley,” “Victor,” or “Vexed.”
