Spring Themed Prewriting and Shape Activities

Our winters are so mild here in Oregon, it’s already starting to feel like Spring. I love it.

Mr. Coppertop mowed the lawn last week and I started to check things off my Spring to-do list.

Here is one of the products I’ve been working on…


Spring Prewriting Activities


I enjoy putting together these prewriting activities for my preschoolers. I have a fall and winter option, so I wanted to add to the collection with a spring-themed notebook.

This is a 30 page download that focuses on the building of fine motor skills while introducing the basic strokes of handwriting AND shape recognition.




This is a small activity notebook.  I chose a durable 1/2 inch three-ring binder as well as, heavy weight, clear page protectors that could withstand the use of a three-year old.

I inserted the 30 page printable into the page protectors and enclosed them within the three-ring binder, and voila! Done!

How We Use


We use these notebooks for our preschooler to work on while I am doing school with the other two.  She loves this activity and asks for it almost daily.

I want it to be a fun and a very, gently-guided activity. Therefore, I don’t correct or make any changes.

We talk about the pictures and shapes, and celebrate when she is able to follow the lines.





If you want to make one of these Spring-Themed Prewriting and Shapes Notebook for your homeschool or classroom you can get the download HERE.




Prewriting is a gentle introduction to handwriting. It builds fine motor skills, teaches basic strokes of handwriting, and simply allows the child to become acclimated to using a writing utensil.

This packet includes the basic strokes of letters and shapes (straight, angled, and crossed lines), flowing motion, and shape formation.
