How to Write the Cursive Letter N
A cursive capital N is easy to write. It’s almost exactly like a handwritten lowercase n, just much bigger. The lowercase cursive n is exactly like a lowercase handwritten n, also identical capital cursive n.
The letter n in cursive usually connects to the letter e in words like:
Cursive n’s also connect to the letter o in many words. Some of these include:
After you become comfortable with writing the letter n in cursive, practice writing “ne” together as well as “no.” These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words.
Good Practice: N and the letter m are often seen together in different words. It’s a good idea to write words with both to improve your writing.
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital N in the upper left on the top line. Take your stroke down to the bottom line, after that bring your stroke back to the top line. Take your stroke back to the bottom, finishing your initial stroke. Once at the bottom line, remember to make a tail off the right of the letter for connectors or to simply finish the letter.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Begin your stroke just below your midline, on the left of the paper you’re using. Take your stroke to the bottom line, then back to the top and back down to the bottom line finishing the letter. Always remember to leave the tail out to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
