Welcome to Cursive Writing More and more schools are teaching cursive writing from the start, with children learning a style of handwriting which will be very easy to join later. Often the style taught includes entry strokes, and children are encouraged to join their letters as soon as they are able to.
One of the problems with this is that it is very hard to find affordable computer fonts to enable teachers, parents and children to create text for in a style which matches their school handwriting style. There are a few commercial fonts available, but they are often too expensive for parents to use at home.
There are lots of free handwriting fonts on the web which can be downloaded, but I have yet to find one that exactly matches the style which I learnt at school, never mind the newer styles. So we've decided to try and solve this problem by creating handwriting fonts for UK schools in both cursive with lead-ins and precursive styles.
We have unjoined fonts in solid, dotted, dotted with handwriting guidelines, dotted with arrows and outline styles. We also offer a system for creating fully joined handwriting using Microsoft Word.
Take a look around this site to see if you can find the handwriting style which your school uses. If not, please contact me and I'll see if I can create one for you.
