Magic Shapes: Cursive Handwriting Scheme
Learn to write in cursive
Make a word wand and learn the magic grip position. Develop your confidence and muscle memory by tracing basic shapes. Then combine those same shapes into complete letter shapes!
The Magic Shapes Cursive handwriting scheme includes vertical and horizontal handwriting resources. Children rotate between activity stations to have a go at tracing, writing and making letter shapes.
Free online animations for the basic letter shapes are here.
