Writing an Uppercase G in Cursive
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital G on the bottom line on the lower left. Begin your stroke, taking it to the top line, making a small loop.
Then, take your stroke outwards, making a small dip in the top. Where that stroke ends, take your line back down to your starting point, where you will make another small loop. Taking your stroke out and towards the right, making a tail, finishing the letter.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Writing a Lowercase g in Cursive
Begin your lowercase g in the middle line like in the diagram (above). Start by making a “o” shape, once looped back around to the starting point, take your stroke down below the bottom line. After making the tail under the bottom line, bring your stroke back up, finishing the letter by making a small tail on the right. The tail is for the connecting letters to form words when writing in cursive.
