Joined up writing

What worksheets are here?

On this page you will be finding handwriting worksheets that use a ‘joined-up‘ handwriting style. This style has ONLY a lead out letter stroke. Sometimes it is thought of a half-way house in terms of handwriting styles. As it sits between the printed style and the cursive style. The UK guidelines for primary school teachers asks them to be teaching children to be writing with a joined up writing style. Meaning children do not have to be learning the cursive style.

Learning the joined up style is often easier to learn.

These activities are suitable for kids who can control their pencil, are trying to learn how to write individual letters. Alternatively they can write words, sentences and paragraphs but are needing a refresher on how to form certain letters in the joined up style.
