A cursive capital 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:
Cursive p’s also connect to the letter o in many words. Some of these include:
After you become comfortable with writing the letter p in cursive, practice writing “pe” together as well as “po.” These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words.
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital 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.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
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.
