Writing an Uppercase O in Cursive

Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Writing a Lowercase o in Cursive
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.
