Writing P in Cursive

A cursive P is easy to write. It’s almost exactly like a handwritten capital p. The lowercase cursive p is like many of the other lowercase cursive letters and is also almost exactly like it’s handwritten form.

The letter p in cursive usually connects to the letter e in words like:

  • Pennsylvania
  • perfect
  • period

Cursive p’s also connect to the letter o in many words. Some of these include:

  • pool
  • pork
  • poison

After you become comfortable with writing the letter p in cursive, practice writing “pe” together as well as “po.” Connecting letters together helps you understand how cursive works to form words.

Extra work: Try to throw in words with unique letters for better practice. For instance, write “pork” to see how to write the letter k in a word.

Writing a Cursive Capital P

As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital cursive P just below your top line with a small tail. From there bring your stroke to the bottomline creating a stem.

Bring your stroke back up to the top and create a large loop, ending in the middle of the stem and finishing your stroke. Like many letters in the cursive alphabet, capital P won’t connect to the other letters forming the word.

Now you can write a capital P in cursive!

Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.

Writing a Lowercase p in Cursive

Like capital P, begin your stroke just below your midline. Take your stroke slightly up to the centerline, then bring it back down below the bottom line, creating a stem.

Bring your stroke back above the bottom line, take your stroke and make a big loop on the right side of the stem, creating the “p” shape. To finish the letter, add a tail to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
