Are you looking for Gingerbread Man Activities for your kids? They are sure to love using these Gingerbread Man Tracing Worksheets this holiday season! They can trace over the lines with a marker or use play dough to “ice” the cookie.
Gingerbread Man Tracing Worksheets For Pre-Writing:
Before pre-writers can learn how to form and write the letters, they need to practice using writing tools and develop their pencil grip. They also need to work on making basic pre-writing strokes including straight lines, curved lines, zig-zags, and shapes which 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, kids 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 in coordination with the eyes is important in not only children’s learning but also in their everyday life.
