Lesson 4


Alphabet- Cursive & Print

English letters is usually written in 2 main styles- cursive and print. Cursive is the traditional and preferred style when learning to write. Print is what we see in books and in most printed text.

When we get to the writing lessons, you can choose which style you wish to practice writing. For now, we simply want to learn to identify which style is cursive and which style is print.

Practice: point to each letter and say,  "Cursive + 'letter name', or "Print + 'letter name.' Practice this until you can correctly identify the 26 letters and say if it is cursive or print.
