How to Write Cursive U [Worksheet + Tutorial]

Cursive u

Writing U in Cursive

A cursive U is easy to write. It’s almost exactly like a handwritten capital u. The lowercase cursive u is also almost exactly like a lowercase handwritten u.

The letter u in cursive typically connects to the letter n in many words like:

  • unlikely
  • unhappy
  • uncle

The u also connects to the letter p in many words. Some of these include:

  • upset
  • upstairs

After you become comfortable with writing the letter u in cursive, practice writing “un” together as well as “up.” Practicing joining letters will help you understand how cursive works to form words.

Bonus Practice: Write words, like “unique” to get some practice writing the letter q.

Writing a Cursive Capital U

As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital cursive U just below the topline with a small tail, then bring your stroke immediately down to the bottom line.

Continue your stroke from the bottom line, making a half “o” shape. From the half “o” shape, bring your stroke back to the top line and back down one last time, ending out to the right to connect to your next letter.

Now you can write a capital U in cursive!

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

Writing a Lowercase u in Cursive

Begin your stroke below your midline, take your stroke to the midline. From there, bring your stroke to the bottom line and just like with capital cursive U, make the half “o”shape.

Once your stroke meets the midline again, finish your stroke by taking it back to the bottom line and leave a tail out to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
