There is one font which I am aware of that represents miniscule script, but
it may not be suitable for instruction in penmanship. The font I am
referring to is a reproduction of the script of Lectionary 562.  The
penmanship, in my opinion, is not the greatest, but probably not atypical of
an age where precision 1 mm technical pens did not exist.

I also have some other miscellaneous Greek fonts at
http://www.higherwinds.net/fonts.html. One of them is a font reproduction
for the famous Codex Sinaiticus.
