My daughter enters 3rd grade this year, and more than anything she is most excited to learn how to “write fancy” AKA write in cursive. This is the year, and she can’t wait. She is so excited, I decided to give her a little taste this summer to start practicing by making her some printable cursive worksheets.
These printable cursive worksheets are sponsored by Bic Fight For Your Write.
Printable Cursive Worksheets
You’ve never seen a kid so excited over worksheets when I gave them to her!
So together we practiced the loops and curves.
She has a long way to go before she is ready to write letters to her pen pal in cursive, but it is a start and I am sure with mom’s cursive worksheets she will perfect her cursive letters in no time.

In the mean time, there is a lot of writing going on in our house preparing for the 3rd grade. From short stories, to thank you notes and yes, letters to her pen pal. As a writer I encourage her to practice writing and creative thinking any chance I can. It’s funny because she now says that math is her favorite subject, and yet she continues to excel at writing.
While I have taken to writing most of my work on the computer these days, I still have a fond love for the written word on paper. (Don’t even get me started on the importance of a handwritten thank you note!) So I fully support Bic’s Fight For Your Write campaign.
As part of the Fight For Your Write campaign, I asked K a few writing prompt questions. Although she isn’t ready to write them in cursive yet, wouldn’t it be fun to have her redo this activity in cursive at the end of the school year to compare her answers and handwriting?!
- What would you do if you were principal for a day?
- What are you looking forward to most this school year?
- What is your favorite subject, and what do you like about it?
- What is your favorite thing to do at recess?
Of course, half of the fun of writing anything is the perfect pencil or pen, and Bic has plenty of styles to choose from. Check out all of these fun supplies!
