Tracing Pictures - Pre Writing Skills Worksheets

We have created 8 new "Tracing Pictures" Pre Writing Skills worksheets which is now available to download to all our users. Both educators and parents can use these worksheets with preschool children to encourage and develop writing. 

Each worksheet consists of lines or shapes that a child can trace over and then they continue on to decorate and colour the picture. The skill of tracing over different lines or shapes is called pattern writing. Pattern writing are specific strokes and shapes that comprise in all letters and numbers. As a child practices pattern writing through copying and tracing lines and shapes, this will give them the confidence and the ability to write letters and numbers correctly. 

Our new Tracing Pictures worksheets aims to support a pre-school child in the development of pre-writing skills. It provides the child the ability to use cognitive development, fine motor skills  and hand-eye co-ordination. It encourages the child to draw in a specific direction. The basic lines and curves (that are traced over broken lines) which are included in pattern writing are essential to the development of learning to write letters.
