ART OF PEN MAKING
An illustrated article for young ladies from a 19th Century Children's Magazine.  It describes how to make the correct pen point for a Quill pen using a pen knife.  This would be a good way to get a reluctant handwriter interested in the subject.  My boys love anything they can do with their pocket knives, just don't tell them it was originally written for girls.

BJU Press 
Pre-Cursive Fonts
Manuscript Print, plus Dashed Version for tracing & one with arrows for directions.

Script S
Lauren Script
Except for the capital "A", these two match up very nicely.  One is for beginning work and the other for fancy work.

Script C
Dahling
Except for the lowercase "r" these two match nicely.  One is for beginning work, and the other for fancy work.

 

My boys are 9 & 12 and we use Script S most often.  After working with it for a little while I realized that it is quite close to matching McGuffey's Script Alphabet, linked at the top of the page.  Other Fonts you may already have on your computer include Freehand 521, Jott43 and Lucinda Handwriting.
