The letter m in cursive usually connects the letters e and a in words like:
Cursive m’s also connect to the letter i in many words. Some of these include:
After you become comfortable with writing the letter m in cursive, practice writing “me” and “ma” together as well as “mi.” These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words.
Extra Practice: There are lots of “m words” that use the letter l or a cursive n. Write our example words to become a pro.
Writing an Uppercase M in Cursive
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital M on the upper left of the top line. Bring your stroke to the bottom line, and back to the top line. Repeat this once more, this time looping out to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Writing a Lowercase m in Cursive
Begin your stroke on the left centerline. Bring your stroke to the bottom line then bring it back up to the centerline. Repeat this step once more this time looping out to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
