Test out our tongue twisters!
There are two ways to practice cursive handwriting. Firstly, you can be copying out the alphabet and meaningless sentences over and over again. Alternatively, you can be copying out tongue twisters.
For example, this is our way to help master writing the letter ‘a’ in a cursive handwriting style.
- The little addled adder added adverts.
- Can an active actor always actually act accurately?
- If I assist a sister assistant, will the sister’s sister assistant assist me?
Can you say these? How fast can you go?
We know which way we would be preferring to teach handwriting. What way would you choose? More importantly, what way would your child prefer?
The quest for having “neat” cursive writing
During my day, I keep coming across children who are being told that their handwriting has to become “neater”. Or that it “could be improved”. The difficulty is that as these children go through their school years, they are spending less and less time practising their handwriting. They are expected to have their ideas and be writing any new learning down on paper without any legibility errors.
This Tongue Twister Sentence workbook gives children of all ages a chance to be improving their cursive writing but in a fun and engaging way. On every page, there are step-by-step reminders on how to be forming a particular letter of the alphabet. However, I can assure you there is no alphabet writing practice. It is all about saying and writing the tongue twisters.

This is the ‘official’ name for cursive writing. Textbooks and the National Handwriting Association often refer to this phrase. Many schools call it cursive writing. If you wish to know why it is taught in schools check out our blog post about this here.
It can be tricky to be teaching someone else a handwriting style that you personally may not be using. On every worksheet there is an image with arrows giving directions on where the pen should be moving to form specific letters.
In April 2021, the UK government changed its recommendation to all schools. Cursive writing should not be taught in the early years of school. This is based on the fact that most younger children find the motor control aspect of writing in the cursive style with a lead in stroke difficult to achieve.
We offer online lessons which are just as effective as in person lessons. In fact we get to see more of your child’s handwriting because by viewing your child through a camera we are almost on top of them.
