    Why not put one strip on top of the other?

    haha...good luck.

    What grade is this for?

    When I taught 2nd, I used a manuscript alphabet and had a chart with cursive. I couldn't find a cursive aphabet with pictures this year (looked at Lakeshore and another local store).

    I've never seen a strip alphabet with manuscript AND cursive.

    I'd think you'll have to stack one on top of the other (as czacza said) or make your own.

    I've never seen a Cursive Alphabet with pitcures, because by the time students start writing in cursive, they know what the letters sound like. I would find a manuscript alphabet like this one http://www.carsondellosa.com/cd2/Pr...=N&id=110037&keyword=alphabet&page=5&oid=3130 and then cut apart a Cursive Alphabet like this one http://www.carsondellosa.com/cd2/Pr...p=N&id=3249&keyword=cursive+alphabet&oid=2945 and place it on bottom. The reason I think it'd be better to have the letters separate is because (since you want them together) it won't look funny if one is a different size and the letters will match up.

    I'm teaching a 5th grade self-contained special ed class and some of my students are starting to write in cursive, while some are still struggling with traditional manuscript...

    I want to make sure I have both alphabets for them to use to as a reference...

    I found a cursive alphabet with pictures at the Dollar Tree. I found a pic but it's not very good. You will have to click the picture to make it bigger. Sorry my Activboard is blocking half of it b/c I got my new board in the middle of the year :(
