After you become comfortable with writing the letter o in cursive, practice writing “op” together as well as “ox.” These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words.
Bonus Practice: This letter doesn’t begin many words, but it is included in many. Try many different words and phrases to practice connected an o to the rest of the alphabet.
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital O at the top line, make a handwritten “o” shape. After making the “o” shape, you should be back at the topline, from there make a small loop on the right, inside of the top of the O.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Just like the capital cursive O, begin your stroke just below the centerline, making a handwritten lowercase o shape. After that, just like the capital o, make a small loop in the top of the o. Make sure it is out to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
