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
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!
- Clear Page Protectors
- 1/2 inch Three Ring Binder
- Kids Fine Point Dry Erase Markers
- Spring-Themed Prewriting Activities
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.
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.
