Whether children are learning manuscript or cursive, speed should not be emphasized until children can form letters legibly and from memory. With either form, however, children must eventually develop enough speed to use writing efficiently in tasks such as note-taking or test-taking.
Teach similarly formed letters together, and use an instructional sequence that takes into account both ease of formation and frequency in words.
Teach children consistent formation of letters using a continuous stroke if possible.
