Apple Tracing Worksheets:

Young children need to practice writing skills and should learn how to hold a pencil correctly before learning to write.


It’s also important that they explore basic pre-writing strokes that are used to construct letters.


Tracing exercises like this one also help preschoolers develop their fine motor skills, dexterity and other cognitive functions.

What Are Fine Motor Skills?

Fine motor muscles in the fingers and hand help children to grip objects, pick up small things like paper or crayons, and draw.


The movements of the hand and arm while tracing help to develop their fine motor skills.


Developing fine motor skills are important for writing and other tasks that require a lot of control.
