Cursive Writing Practice Printables – Free Cursive Worksheets

Grab these free cursive writing practice printables to help your child learn a valuable skill that many don’t teach anymore.

Cursive writing seems to be something many overlook when it comes to homeschooling. Some believe that it’s not a skill that kids need to learn, some believe it is.

I know that public schools quit teaching it simply because everything was going more toward technology. There wasn’t enough time in a public school day to teach cursive, so they focused more on typing and computer skills. – NEA Today

While computer skills and typing are very important these days, I’ve always thought cursive was an important skill to learn.

Benefits of Kids Learning Cursive

There are plenty of benefits to teaching kids cursive but I want to list a few of my favorites and most important ones.

  1. Historical documents are written in cursive. If children learn to read and write cursive, they will be able to understand what these documents say. This will provide more learning and interest in our history.
  2. It’s quicker. Some students learn better by writing the information down. Writing in cursive will allow them to jot down notes and thoughts quickly.
  3. Signatures. I know many will argue that signatures are going digital but for legal documents, it’s still important.

In addition to the free cursive writing practice worksheets, I’ve made some cursive charts that you can print and hang up. Since we are limited on our homeschool space, I made the cursive chart 11×8.5 in.

This will allow you to easily place them on the fridge, wall, desk, etc. You can also laminate the cursive chart pages and set them in front of the kids as they practice and learn.
