How to Write the Cursive Letter E
A cursive capital E is easy to write, it’s similar to the number three except it is flipped. The lowercase cursive e is almost identical to a handwritten lowercase e.
The capital cursive letter E in cursive is a special case when considering its connectors. Like a few other capital cursive letters in the alphabet it does not connect to other letters when beginning a word, phrase or sentence.
After you become comfortable with writing the letter e in cursive, upper and lowercase, practice writing “ea” together as well as “ed.” These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words and sentences.
Extra Practice: While a cursive t rarely connects to an e, these letters are often in the same words. Practice words with t to improve your writing skill.
As you see in the diagram (at the top), begin the capital E on the top of the line you’re writing on. Then, move your pen or pencil over to the left, creating the hump on the back. Bring your stroke back into the middle of the line, then back outwards and repeat the first step for the bottom half of the letter.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Begin your stroke on the middle line (between the two you’re writing on).
The lowercase e is identical to the lowercase handwritten e. You want to begin your stroke on the middle line, creating a small loop, upward and around. Bringing the tail of the letter out to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
