    Hi Debbie.
    You have some Fantastic resources, unfortunately I have a problem. Is there any chance that you can also do a cursive option. This would be very helpful as my school is all cursive. Thank you for your time.

    • Hi Bev, this worksheet does have cursive text but it wouldn’t be practical for me to do all my resources in cursive. So sorry. Personally I believe children should be able to read all sorts of different text. After all if they are reading a book it isn’t in cursive. Appreciate your feedback though, thank you 🙂
