Best cursive fonts for children.

Recommended Posts

Akôwè

Hi honourable administrators and members,

I make this post to learn from your experiences and opinions. In my town, we often use CURSIVE Font to make reading and writing test for children.

Have you experience children's reading with CURSIVE Font or other fonts similar or not to CURSIVE? What version of CURSIVE Font do you recommend for children? What others Font do you recommend to make writing and specially reading test easy for them?

 

Thank you in advance and looking forward to your comments.

One option is Castledown which seems to have been designed for use in schools.

It's a pleasure to read your comment.

I appreciate and find it very informative.

Gratefully from AK

The questions are many and each one has many facets, thus I will address just some aspects.

About writing:

As for reading, usually a style called “infant” is used, that features simplified shapes for |a| and |g|, more reminiscent of their cursive forms.

I’d like to recommend you to have closer a look at Sassoon Primary. It is one of the very few typefaces that have been designed by an experienced designer in close collaboration with an expert in teaching handwriting to children and not only commissioned by educators. Another good one is Basisschrift by Hans Eduard Meier, it is used in the German speaking parts of Switzerland. Same procedure as with Sassoon. Both typefaces are based on the forms of the humanist cursive script.

Dear Akôwè,

I think you might be also interested in the Barchowsky Report on italic handwriting a good read: https://www.operina.com/2/203.html It describes the so called Icelandic Method, developed by Gunnlaugher Briem.

best regards & a happy New Year to all of you here 🙂
