   Learning the Strokes: Curve Down
Curve down strokes are used in lowercase and uppercase cursive letters. Curve down strokes begin at the midline for lowercase cursive letters.
Trace and practice the curve down strokes that begin at the midline.

Curve down strokes begin at the skyline for uppercase cursive letters. Trace and practice the curve down strokes that begin at the skyline.

 Present
• Read aloud the heading on the page. Continue by asking students to follow along as you or a volunteer reads the next two sentences about the stroke.
Practice
• Have students practice writing curve down strokes that begin at the midline.
• Together read the next two lines of text. Draw students’ attention to the row of curve down strokes that begin at the skyline. Explain that many uppercase cursive letters begin with the stroke shown. Where does this curve down stroke begin? (at the skyline) Where does it end? (at the baseline)
• Have students complete the rows by tracing and writing the curve down strokes.
• Read aloud the next direction line. Explain that each letter or numeral shown at the bottom of the page begins with a curve down stroke. Together, name the letters in the first row. Where does the curve down stroke begin in each of these letters? (at the midline) Where does it end? (at the baseline)
Proceed
• Have students trace the curve down stroke that begins each letter and numeral, asking students to identify the starting and ending point for the curve down strokes.
