How to Connect Capital K in Cursive

Teaching a student to write a capital K in D’Nealian cursive involves several steps to ensure proper form and flow:

  1. Starting Position:
    • Begin at the top line of the writing area.
  2. Forming the Capital K:
    • Start with a slanted stroke downward from the top-left to the bottom-right.
    • At the midline, form an outward loop or curve to the right.
    • After the curve, bring the stroke downward to the baseline.
    • Lift the pen after completing the K as it stands independently.
  3. Demonstrating Connections (if necessary):
    • Explain that in D’Nealian cursive, capital letters usually don’t directly connect to the following letter.
    • However, you can demonstrate leaving a small space or connector stroke at the end of the K for transitioning to the next letter.

    • Explain that in D’Nealian cursive, lowercase letters often connect to the following letter.
  3. Continuing to the Next Letter:
