Get our preschool line tracing worksheets to practice fine motor skills and learn about the weather all at the same time! A great pre-writing activity to introduce your kids to handwriting.
When I went to primary school we had these special notebooks to practice our handwriting. It had all kinds of line tracing exercises and activities inside. And I remember it as if I had it in my hands just yesterday. That’s how much I loved practicing tracing different patterns, objects, and later on letters.
Benefits of line tracing and pre-writing activities
There is something super fun about tracing activities. It’s rewarding for the kids to see an image come together or a pattern emerge as they draw along the dotted lines.
Of course, as a parent, you want activities you do with your kids to be not only fun but educational as well.
Well, I probably don’t need to tell you that line tracing is an amazing pre-writing activity for your little one!
Pre-writing activities help develop your child’s control of the small muscles in their hands. It helps them learn the correct way to hold a pencil and how to use a firm grip. It also helps develop hand-eye coordination. All of this is essential for learning to handwrite later on.
There are different types of pre-writing activities and what you choose for your little one depends on their age and their individual development. Remember, every child is different and there’s no need to rush things.
But today it’s all about line tracing!
