Hi. I’m Denise. Thank you for watching my
video. Today I’m going to talk about connecting the cursive letter i with other cursive letters.
So, let’s get started. The letter i goes up, back down and has a dot. So it ends at
the bottom, so that would be our starting point for the other letters. I will start
by connecting several i’s together. i, i, I just keep going up. Up, back down, up, back
down, up, back down, up, back down. And each one has a dot. Okay? Here we go with other
letters. i-a. Okay, so I had to get to the top of the a, to the starting point of the
a, and I go around and back down. Okay, i-a, i-b. That one was easy because I was down
here at the starting point of the b. i-c. I have to get to the starting point of the
c. Now at this point, I begin making the c. i-d, i-e, i-f, i-g, i-h. I-i is up here. i-j,
i-k, i-l, i-m, i-n, i-o, i-p, i-q, i-r, i-s, i-t, i-u, i-v, i-w, i-x, i-y, i-z. And now
I’ll write some words beginning with i. So let’s start with ice, i-c-e, ice. How
about item? i-t-e-m. Then we have the word ill, i-l-l. And the word important, i-m-p-o-r-t-a-n-t.
Notice after I write a word like that, I have to lift up my pen, cross my t’s and dot
my i, after I have written the whole word. So I do all of the connected letters or portions
of the letter first. Then I go back and cross the t’s, dot the i. Okay? The capital i
is not connected to the next letter. Capital i ends over here, and the next letter begins
here, so we do not cross over and make that connection. However, if you want, you could
touch here when you begin the next letter to make them look connected, but we do not
connect it from over here. We don’t connect it from this side. So that’s the letter
i. Thanks for watching. Please visit my website coopos.com and look at my other videos. Thanks.
