Use slant guides
A slant guide, also known as a writing guide, is used to teach proper slant and positioning when writing in cursive. It helps to promote proper posture and hand position while writing, making it easier to write in cursive.
Using a slanted guide can also help prevent bad habits from developing, such as writing letters at an angle that is too steep or too shallow. By providing a visual reference, the slant guide can help students write in a more uniform and consistent manner.
