Handwriting practice worksheets are a great way to get kids to learn, or improve, their writing skills. They’re especially handy in early elementary school when kids are old enough to sit down and write, but still developing their handwriting.

With more things becoming digital and typing takes over, it’s more important than ever to reinforce handwriting in kids. Even if it means working on it at home.

What Kind of Handwriting Practice Worksheets Are Best?

If you’re new to worksheets, here’s how to choose the best one for your child:

Age Appropriate

Look for printable worksheets that aren’t too easy or hard for the child who you’re practising with. There are handwriting practice worksheets that are great for beginners at the preschool or kindergarten level, and more advanced ones to help elementary aged kids.

It’s best if you start with skills they are already familiar with and work your way up to more difficult ones. If it’s too simple kids will get bored, and one that’s too complicated could lead to frustration.

Skill Building

What skills is the child working on that need some extra practice? Simple letter formation worksheets are great for beginners in preschool and kindergarten. Once they master their ABCs you can move on to whole words and phrases.

Another way to practice writing in elementary school is with guided lessons. You can incorporate teaching other skills, like learning the spelling of a child’s name, their address, or the days of the week into your writing practice to teach two skills at once!

Number Practice

Number formation is a part of handwriting and a necessary skill to develop as kids are introduced to early math concepts. Teaching kids to form, and later write, numbers 1-10, 1-20, and eventually 1-100 happens during kindergarten and the early elementary years. 

Worksheets can help teach kids how to write their numbers and also give them number sense and rote counting practice.

  • 1-100 Number Tracing Practice

Customizable

One size never fits all when it comes to kids. Choose printables that can be customized with your own words and fonts to help support a child’s learning goals. What’s great about custom options is that you can repeat the same worksheet at different difficulty levels or practice cursive handwriting. 

  • Word Tracing Practice – Original

Using Cursive Handwriting Practice Worksheets

Speaking of cursive, printables worksheets are one of the best ways to master that skill. Typically, kids start with basic printing and then move on to pre-handwriting letter formation. The D’Nealian – Manuscript font is great for this.

Since proper letter formation is really important with cursive writing (incorrect writing won’t flow as easily), handwriting practice worksheets should be repeated until kids get a good hang of each letter.

From there, you can move onto joining some letters together to spell a word. I like to start with the child’s name.

Using Worksheets to Measure Progress

If you’re an elementary school teacher or homeschooling family you’re always looking for ways to measure the child’s progress. Handwriting isn’t a black and white skill; it improves slowly over time.

So how do you measure handwriting progress?

At the beginning of the school year, have each child complete a handwriting worksheet. The exact worksheet you use will depend on the age of the kids. Kindergarteners and first grade kids, for example, should either use the alphabet or their name as a guide.

The school year will provide plenty of opportunities to develop any areas where kids might be struggling with their writing, and there’s definitely no shortage of writing practice for school aged kids!

At the end of the year have them repeat the worksheet they completed at the start. This will give you an idea of how much the child has improved with their writing over the term. Not only is it a great tool for educators, kids find seeing their progress motivating too.

For older elementary kids you can do something more complex. Just make sure that you can consistently repeat it again at the end of the year, or at least have them do something similar enough that you’ll be able to see the progress.

Measuring Numeracy Skills

You can also use this technique to measure number writing. For this, I really like the last page of this number tracing worksheet pack . You can use the other pages throughout the school year to practice, but the last one has numbers 1-100 listed on one page.

Just like with the handwriting worksheets, have kids complete the sheet at the start of the year to the best of their ability. You can also use those sheets as an indication for where your child or class is at, and tailor your lessons accordingly.

Then, at the end of the year, have them try and trace numbers 1-100 again and see how much they’ve improved!

Measuring Cursive Handwriting Progress

If your child is learning cursive handwriting, or you’re practising at home, you can use the same method to measure their progress with two worksheets. 

When working with older children it’s nice to use a longer sentence when measuring cursive writing progress since it’s important to see how well the child can link the letters together. 

If you want to see how well kids can write on their own, a printable creative story writing worksheet is a great way to encourage independent writing. 

How to Use Worksheets to Improve Reading and Spelling

Writing out words is one of the best ways to help kids learn to spell. Customizable handwriting practice worksheets can be generated with a child’s name, dolch sight words, or weekly spelling words.

This word tracing worksheet is perfect for reading and spelling skills. You can customise it with any words or phrases you’re practising. 

Rainbow Writing – Have them pick out several colored pencils and then write each letter out in a color pattern. This helps kids slow down and take in each letter because they have to stop to change colors.

Sound Blends – Use the worksheets to help identify tricky sound blends like \sh\ or \oo\. Have them write those blends in different colors or highlight them. This can also be helpful for kids with speech problems.

Rhyming Words – List a bunch of words that rhyme like “ball, fall, tall, hall, etc.” and have the child colour the rhyming part (all) in a different colour from the rest of the word. For older kids, use longer or compound words (eg. gumball, downfall, etc.).

Handwriting Worksheets for Language Learning

Whether it’s ESL or another language, worksheets are great for learning at any age. You can customise them to include vocabulary and spelling words. Then just use the techniques listed above to work on your reading or spelling!

How to Keep Children Interested in Handwriting Practice

When you’re working with kids at the early elementary level you have to get creative to keep them focused. Traditional worksheets are a great tool, but too much of them can get boring. Here’s some ways to make it more fun:

Emphasise Practising Their Name

It’s one of the first words young kids master writing. Planning writing practice around a child’s name is great for the start of kindergarten to introduce name writing, and throughout the year to practice other skills.

Name tracing practice booklets like this one can make writing more fun. There’s some tracing, plus cutting, sorting, and glueing activities. These break up the writing and help develop other early reading and writing skills in a more engaging way.

Think Past The Writing Worksheet

You can use worksheets for more than just writing! Some, like this playdough worksheet , are perfect for preschoolers to work on letter formation even if they can’t write yet.

Other ideas include turning a worksheet into a puzzle by cutting out each letter, using bubble letters to turn a worksheet into a word colouring page, and having kids use a worksheet as a reminder to help them write new words on a separate piece of paper. 

You can also make worksheets fun by making them seasonal . Plus it’s a handy way to measure progress throughout the year.

Make it Useful

Learning is way more fun when you understand why you’re learning something. Instead of just having kids repeat letter formation or write out meaningless sentences, have them practice writing something they can actually use.

One way to do this is with an address writing worksheet . While it’s good for learning a child’s own address and phone number, you can also turn it into a letter writing activity.

First, collect and practice the address for someone the child would like to send a letter to. Then copy that address onto the envelope! 

Since the post office will have to read the address, you’ll be able to give a real-world reason for why neat, legible handwriting is important to learn. 

The letter itself can contain a drawing or, depending on the child’s age and skill level, it can be a letter – which is another opportunity to practice writing in a meaningful way. 

Other Ways For Kids to Practice Handwriting

  • Have them label their school work with their name, and later, the date.
  • Encourage kids to write out useful information like family shopping lists.
  • Writing little notes or messages inside of cards and giving them to family and friends.
  • Gift lists for birthdays or holidays (letters to Santa are great for this!).
  • Let kids practice with unique writing tools like window writers, sidewalk chalk, bath crayons, etc. 

Handwriting practice worksheets are a great tool when it comes to teaching elementary aged kids printing and cursive writing! These activities are great for developing skills at home or in the classroom. Once your child gets used to worksheets, try adding in some fun activities to keep them interested. Have fun learning!

350+ Free Handwriting Worksheets for Kids

Helping a child learn to write is a lot of fun. There are a few things you can do to help your student learn to write.

First, make sure you help your child hold their pencil correctly. We have a fun Alligator trick that works well and children love for helping a child hold their pencil correctly.

Next, make sure you help the child know where to start forming the letters. We always start the letter at the top and pull down. It is not good enough to let your student practice, practice, practice. Make sure when they are practicing writing that they are practicing writing well. When you write/form a letter correctly, you are able to write faster later (when you are better at writing).

Help your child have proper spacing on the paper between letters and words.  One fun trick is to have a “spaceman”/wooden ‘Popsicle’ stick to place between words, or a student can use a finger, OR, a cheerio.  Soon your student will know how to space words well.

You can make handwriting practice fun by giving children colored pencils to write with.  Write a rainbow!  Drawing is a great way to practice handwriting.  Yes, you still have to practice letter formation, but, pencil grip is part of the battle.  Make sure you child is holding their pencil correctly and then have them draw!

Also, if you have tracing sheets, have your student use a highlighter and trace over the letters.  My students always like this.  To help you help your students practice writing, I have included some free printable handwriting worksheets below .  Hope you find what you need!  A great way to start teaching handwriting is to first start teaching the child how to write his/her own name!

How To Improve Your Handwriting (+FREE Worksheets)

When someone asks, “How can I improve my handwriting?” they usually look for a few things they can easily implement to make their writing look more legible or presentable.

The problem is that handwriting is a habit deeply ingrained in both the mind and the muscles, so even a tiny change can be difficult to implement.

I’ve always taken a different approach to helping people with their handwriting, one that might require a little more time and commitment but gives the writer all the tools they need to take their handwriting as far as they like.

The approach is to first understand how handwriting works on a basic level, then apply that understanding to improve your own handwriting.

Sample of beautiful handwriting.

Understanding the Fundamentals of Handwriting

If you don’t understand how handwriting works fundamentally, you will always feel lost when trying to improve your handwriting, even if you are following the advice of a handwriting expert.

When you understand how handwriting works, everything becomes clear. You will know things like:

  • Why the letters have different heights
  • Why the letters are spaced the way they are
  • Why the letters have different forms yet work together to create a cohesive script
  • The way to position your body, hold the pen, and position the paper for optimal writing
  • Why someone’s handwriting is more legible or visually pleasing than another’s

I hope you can see that if you understand all the above, improving your handwriting will be a walk in the park.

So your first task, if you want to improve your handwriting, is to learn the fundamentals of handwriting.

The best way to do this is to study a proven handwriting system.

Any time-tested system will do. I recommend American Cursive because it is a beautiful, legible script.

I also have a  free course that will teach you everything you need to know  about American Cursive.

before and after image example of improved handwriting.

Regardless of what script you choose, by studying one, you will learn how handwriting works, and you will be able to apply what you’ve learned to any other script, including your own chicken scratch.

By studying a script like American Cursive, you will learn these important concepts and more:

  • Body position ,  pen grip , and  paper position
  • The grid , or how the lines printed on the page (and the imaginary ones that aren’t) work with the letters
  • How to write across the page
  • How a script builds on  fundamental strokes  and repeats those strokes throughout the alphabet

If you want a taste of how important the fundamentals are, I suggest you watch the video below titled “The Cursive Grid,” which is from my  free online cursive course .

What Do You Want Your Handwriting to Look Like?

When you study American Cursive or any other script, you will learn to write in that style, but that doesn’t mean your personal handwriting needs to look exactly like the script you are studying.

That said, traditional scripts like American Cursive were successful for a reason.

They evolved out of the culture in which they were created and have stood the test of time as legible, visually pleasing scripts.

You cannot go wrong by trying to emulate a traditional script, and no matter how hard you try, your script will always have personal quirks that are unique to you.

The great thing about studying a traditional script is that you have a very clear and defined vision to work towards.

Every traditional script has an exemplar, which is the ideal letterforms that comprise the script.

With an exemplar in hand, you know exactly what your goal is, and you can always compare your handwriting to the exemplar to see where you are falling short.

Exemplar of American Cursive Lowercase Letters

If you want your handwriting to have its own unique flavor, I suggest you at least find a traditional script to use as a base.

That way, you can take the exemplar from a traditional script and modify it to make it your own, which is much easier than creating an exemplar from scratch.

Of course, you can create one from scratch too, but it takes a lot of time to do it right, and the result won’t be as good unless you understand handwriting at a high level.

Let’s be clear, you need an exemplar. Without an image of the ideal letters, you will wander aimlessly and waste a lot of time while making little improvement.

Whether you are studying from the exemplar of a traditional script or your own unique creation, you will be armed with everything you need to improve your handwriting.

Cursive handwriting example.

You’ve Done the Work, Now Apply It

I know, I know.

You’ve already done a lot of work.

Learning the fundamentals of handwriting is no small task and creating your own exemplar takes time too.

The good news is that your handwriting will already look much better by this point.

That’s because your understanding of handwriting is naturally solving the problems with your handwriting without you having to do anything except pay attention while you write.

Of course, there are more active things you can do to improve your handwriting at this stage.

When you understand the fundamentals, improving your handwriting is a straightforward process –

  • identify errors,
  • and figure out why you are making the errors.

If you can see an error in your writing and then understand exactly why you are making that error, resolving the error is pretty easy.

Here’s an example.

As you can see, our friend’s handwriting here is very cramped in the horizontal direction.

Fixing this is pretty easy because he’s done the work and understands the basics of handwriting.

Our friend was able to fix this problem because he understands that spacing is controlled by the movement of the hand and that movement is limited by the hand’s range of motion.

He is trying to write too many letters without picking up his hand and moving it to the right.

The problem was easily solved by pausing more often to move the hand and continue writing with proper spacing.

This is just one example of how improving your handwriting works when you have an understanding of the fundamentals.

You have all the tools to identify, analyze, and resolve issues with your handwriting.

How much you want to improve your handwriting is up to you.

Handwriting example.

As you improve your handwriting, the errors in your writing will become less noticeable to the average person.

However, you will see more and more errors in your writing.

This is because when you are studying handwriting, you are training your eye to see errors, which allows you to see the more subtle errors that previously escaped your eye.

The only way to end this process is to become satisfied with your handwriting or keep working on it for the rest of your life.

Should you become satisfied with your handwriting, writing regularly will maintain it.

Quick recap + final words on improving your handwriting

There you have it, friends.

If you’re genuinely looking to improve your handwriting, this is the best approach you can take. 

Little tips and tricks may marginally improve the look of your handwriting.

However, learning the fundamentals will allow you to take your handwriting to a new level. 

Here is a quick recap of the whole article – 

  • Understand the basics of handwriting
  • Pick and study a proven handwriting system, e.g., American Cursive
  • Always practice using an existing exemplar
  • It’s easier to use an existing exemplar than to create one from scratch
  • You’ll be able to apply the knowledge to other writing styles as well (even create your own)
  • Once you understand the fundamentals, you’ll be able to correct your mistakes
  • The improvement of your handwriting will depend on how much time and effort you put into it

Once again, be sure to check out my free online course that will teach you everything you need to know about American Cursive.

I often get asked what paper I recommend. For regular copy paper this 5 ream case of paper is one of the better deals. For cardstock I really like this card stock paper on amazon . It is much cheaper than I have found in stores and has a good thickness for most projects without being so thick that it jams the printer.
