Have your kids practice pre-writing skills with these Christmas Stocking Tracing Worksheets!
These holiday themed preschool worksheets are just one of the 25 Days of Christmas Activities that you can to celebrate the season while your preschoolers work on their fine motor skills.
Christmas Stocking Tracing Worksheets For Pre-Writing:
Before pre-writers can learn how to form and write the letters, they need to learn how to hold a pencil and practice using writing tools.
Preschoolers also need to work on making basic pre-writing strokes like straight lines, curved lines, zig-zags, and shapes. These are the building blocks for letter formation.
Pre-writing activities like these tracing worksheets are also a great way for kids to develop their fine motor skills, hand muscle strength, and much more.
Why Are Fine Motor Skills Important?
From holding a pencil to turning the pages in a book, children use their fine motor skills everyday as they are learning to read and write.
The development of the small muscles in the hands and fingers will not only help children when they are learning but also in their everyday life activities.
