How can I learn to hand write in Serbian Cyrillic?

I'm learning Serbian (or BCSM or Serbo-Croat or whatever we're calling the language this week; though I'm specifically interested in learning the Serbian variant of these related-and-mildly-divergent-languages).
I know the alphabet and have a very very tiny basic vocabulary minus any of the relevant grammar. There appear to be some decent grammar textbooks, and I have native speakers who can work with me on the grammar so I'm less concerned about that.
But I'd like to practice hand writing in Serbian Cyrillic so that I can still do some self-study. When I learned English as a tiny tot, we had those great workbooks where you learned how to properly form the letters. Something similar must exist for Serbian Cyrillic, right? How would I get my hands on something like that? Or am I overthinking this and should I just draw the letters as I see them? Or am I EXTREMELY overthinking this and I should not even bother with the Cyrillic at all (eg Is it likely to be abandoned?)?
I like learning the language using the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet. It is a helpful mnemonic device for me, and aids me in pronunciation. (Especially with differentiating between things like the soft and hard "ch"...) So I'd like to do this, but I'm open to hearing your advice. The universities here do not offer courses in this language.
