Are you looking for a simple Valentine’s Day pre-writing activity? Then, you’ll want these free printable Heart Tracing Worksheets! These preschool worksheets are a fun way for your kids to practice writing strokes, pencil grip, fine motor skills, and other pre-writing skills!
Heart 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 every day as they are learning to read and write.
The development of the small muscles in the hands and fingers in coordination with the eyes will not only help children when they are learning but also in their daily lives.
