As we usher in a new year with “January,” our cursive strokes can mirror our aspirations for fresh starts. Let’s embark on this journey by gracefully weaving the loops and lines of the first month. This session promises a serene start to your cursive calendar.
How to Write January in Cursive
Writing “January” in cursive involves smoothly connecting each letter. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to write “January” in cursive:
- J: Start with the uppercase “J”. Begin a little above the midline, make a curve to the left, and then swing it downward below the baseline. As you approach the bottom, curve it slightly to the left, then arc back up and to the right, preparing to connect to the next letter.
- a: Connect from the “J” by curving slightly up, then curve down to the baseline. From there, make a loop that goes back up to the midline and then curves down again to touch the baseline, preparing to connect to the next letter.
- n: Begin the “n” by connecting from the “a” with an upward curve. Go up above the midline, then curve downward to touch the baseline, and move slightly up again, preparing for the next letter.
- u: Start the “u” by curving up slightly from where the “n” ended. Descend in a gentle curve down to the baseline, then curve it back up, reaching the midline. From there, curve back down to the baseline to prepare for the next letter.
- a: Connect from the “u” with a slight upward curve, then curve down to the baseline. Loop back up to the midline and then down again, creating the round body of the “a”.
- r: Connect from the “a”. Start by going slightly upward from the baseline, then make a downward curve that touches the baseline and curves back up, but not as high as the midline. This prepares for the connection to the next letter.
- y: Start the “y” from where the “r” ended. Make a curve that descends below the baseline and then gracefully arcs up to the right, forming a hook. The tail of the “y” should dip well below the baseline.
To master “January” in cursive, practice writing each letter individually until you feel comfortable, and then practice connecting them. With continued practice, the motion of writing “January” in cursive will become more fluid and natural.
