    Learning the Strokes: Curve Over
Curve over strokes begin many uppercase cursive letters and only a few lowercase cursive letters. Curve over strokes begin at the baseline for lowercase cursive letters.
Trace and practice the curve over strokes that begin at the baseline and reach the midline.

Curve over strokes begin at the skyline for most uppercase cursive letters.
Trace and practice the curve over strokes that begin at the skyline and slant down to the baseline.

Trace the beginning curve over stroke that starts on the baseline in each letter below.

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 curve over stroke.
Practice
• Have students practice writing curve over strokes that begin at the baseline and go to the midline.
• Together, read the next paragraph of text. Draw students’ attention to the row of curve over strokes that follows. Explain that many uppercase cursive letters begin with this stroke. Where does this curve over stroke begin? (just below the skyline) Where does it end? (at the baseline)
• Have students complete the rows by tracing and writing the curve over strokes.
Proceed
• Have students name the letters in the last two rows on the page. Ask them to identify the starting point of the curve over stroke used in each of these letters. Then have them trace the beginning stroke in each letter.
