A cursive capital b is easy to write. It’s almost exactly like a handwritten capital b. The lowercase cursive b is a bit more difficult to master.
The letter b in cursive usually connects to the letter e in words like:
Cursive b’s also connect to the letter r in many words. Some of these include:
After you become comfortable with writing a cursive b, practice writing “be” together as well as “br.” These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words.
Writing an Uppercase B in Cursive
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital B in the top left of the line you’re writing on. Then, move your pen or pencil over to the right and immediately down.
Once you reach the bottom of the line, immediately begin moving your writing tool back up the same line. Then, loop over to the right and then come back about the middle of the letter.
Before reaching your line, begin back out to the right and down again for another loop. Finish your stroke just before reaching your initial line.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Writing a Lowercase b in Cursive
Begin your stroke a little above the bottom of the line you’re writing on.
Then, move up and slightly to the right. Once you are near the top of the line, loop sharply to the left and begin another line downward. Very near the bottom, loop to the right and up.
When you reach to the mid-point of the line you’re writing on, quickly loop to the left and down, looping out to the right to either end the letter or connect to the other letters.
