The capital and lowercase cursive letter C may be the easiest letter to write and learn. C is seemingly identical to the handwritten form of letter as well. The letter C also connects well with multiple other letters such as a and e, in words like:
Something important to note is all of the letter C’s connections to other letters are on the bottom tail. After you’re comfortable with writing the letter C in cursive, practice writing “ca” together as well as “ce.” These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words.
Writing an Uppercase C in Cursive
As you see in the diagram (at the top of the page), begin the capital C on the middle of the lines (dotted line) and then pull your pen or pencil slightly up to form the curve on the top of the C. When the top is formed, pull back down to the bottom line and make a slight curve for the tail. Also be sure the back of the letter is also slightly curved, like the handwritten letter “u” turned on its side. Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Writing a Lowercase c in Cursive
When writing a lowercase c in cursive it is much like the capital. C looks identical whether you write them in upper or lowercase form. Begin the lowercase c on the top of the middle dotted line and then pull your writing utensil slightly up to form the curve on the top of the C. When the top is formed, pull back down to the bottom line and make a slight curve for the tail.
