Tracing cursive handwriting can be helpful for preparing children to write the letters themselves, and there are worksheets available that can help children master each letter, notes Super Teacher Worksheets. Tracing cursive letters can also be helpful for children who can write the letters but don't do so neatly as well as those who tend to write the letters too large or too small.
Some worksheets have places for children to both trace single cursive letters or the entire alphabet and then write the letters themselves. These worksheets are especially helpful for letters that are difficult for children to write, such as the letters "z" and "f," states Super Teacher Worksheets.
Some other benefits of practicing cursive handwriting include better academic performance and more brain activity, mentions K5 Learning.
