A Simple Alphabet Style

A simple alphabet style is recommended.

  • Although the handwriting curriculum is determined at the school district level, using a vertical manuscript style with a continuous stroke for as many letters as possible is recommended.
  • If a vertical, simple line, continuous stroke is not used by the district, this manuscript style is specifically recommended for children who struggle with handwriting legibility.
  • Research supports the idea that manuscript that closely resembles traditional print decreases errors in letter recognition (Kuyl & Dewitz, 1994).
