If you have been around the blogosphere and you have preschoolers, I'm sure you've seen many cute, themed tracing worksheets. Three years ago, I was looking for this type of worksheet to use as pre-writing practice for my son, but I couldn't find any. Maybe my problem was that I wasn't on Pinterest back then, or maybe people just hadn't started making and sharing them yet, I really don't know. So, I created just what I needed.
These are not fancy, with cute themes and pretty pictures, but they are exactly what your child will need to master pre-writing skills. Honestly, I get overwhelmed if I have to think of finding just the right pages to complement a particular theme, print them all out, and keep them sorted. Sometimes it's just nice to have materials that work for everything and get the job done well!
Disclaimer *** I do love all the cute, themed sheets I see all over the place, I'm just saying that sometimes it's nice to have a worksheet that works any day of the year =)
Here are the 6 pages that are included in this download:
How to Use Trace and Cut Pages
- Print these pages out and laminate them. Your child can practice tracing them over and over with a dry-erase marker.
- Print these pages out and have your child write directly on them. Save them to track his progress.
- Print these pages out on cardstock for your child to practice cutting along the lines. The slightly thicker paper will make it easier for them to learn to use scissors.
- Print these pages on regular paper once your child is comfortable using scissors.
- However else you can think to use them with your child!
