Writing all 26 letters of the English alphabet can seem like a challenge. But if you are going to master the English language on the page, you will need to be able to use the alphabet to form words and sentences. Whether you are complete letters of the alphabet yourself, or your child, how to write the letters of the English alphabet, its important to start slow and practice each letter until they are easy to write.
Please note: do not include the periods or commas after each step when writing each letter. Take out a piece of lined paper. Lined paper will help you write each letter evenly and uniformly. It will also help to distinguish the difference in size of the upper case and the lower case letters. If you are teaching your child how to write the alphabet, interact with them as they write each letter. Draw a horizontal line in the middle of the two lines: A.
On its right side, draw two half-bubbles, going down the line: B. Draw a half-moon, with an opening on the right: C. One goes on top, one in the middle, one on bottom: E. Then, draw a horizontal line, beginning at the base of the bottom tip, half-way through the C: G. Then, draw a horizontal line in the middle, connecting them: H. If desired, put two short horizontal lines at the top and bottom of the vertical, placing them so the vertical connects them in the middle of the horizontal lines.
Draw a backward-facing fish hook: J. Then, draw two lines, starting from the right hand side, each emanates from the middle. One angles up, the other down: K. Then, draw a shorter, horizontal line on the bottom right: L. 2 way in the middle: M. Then, draw a line that starts from the inner top tip of the left line, and angle it so it touches the other line, on the inner bottom tip: N.
2 bubble on the right side upper tip, and touching the middle of the vertical line: P. Then, on the near-bottom right, draw a vertical line angling right, part-way in the O, and part-way out: Q. 2 bubble touches the vertical line, draw a small line angling right and down: R. Then, draw a shorter, horizontal line on top: T.
Draw the shape of a horseshoe, with the open side facing up: U. Draw two vertical lines next to each other, but, angle the left one to the right and down, and the right one to the left and down: V. Draw one vertical line headed up and right. Draw another vertical line up and leaning left: X. Then, where the two lines meet, draw a vertical line: Y. In one stroke, draw a horizontal line, then a vertical line that angles downward left, then a horizontal line to the right: Z.
Use a piece of lined paper. If you are teaching your child how to write the alphabet, ask them questions as they write each letter. You write c the same way whether it is in uppercase or lowercase, but if you are writing lowercase, make your c smaller than an uppercase C, so it’s the same size as the other lowercase letters. Draw a vertical line, and then to the left of it, draw a lowercase, backwards c. You draw lowercase e with quite a few curves. First, draw a short, horizontal line.
