Introducing Write Out of the Box! Many children are entering Kindergarten with inadequate fine motor skills, poor pencil grasps, and unorthodox letter formation habits because they are writing before they are developmentally ready. Children who develop appropriate fine motor skills will be more likely to write efficiently and effectively in future years.
Tracing Words Learning how to write takes time and practice. Tracing words is one activity that teachers and parents alike can use to give their students help with proper writing skills. Tracing is a self-guided task that ensures students learn the correct way to form letters.
Our son had trouble with writing for the longest time. He had developed some bad habits with pencil grip and it showed in his letters. Whenever he was able to trace the letters, he wrote wonderfully.
Eventually, he was able to give up the tracing and he now writes words with the grace and style of most any 3rd Grader. Which is to say it could still use some work! Print out these worksheets below to give your child the same opportunity to develop quality handwriting skills.
Tracing Words - Worksheets The papers are divided up into different sections. There are various categories of sight words and then some general education words that can be used with some of the other lessons on our site such as learning about numbers and colors. Each paper has one line of traceable words followed by a blank line that students can use to practice writing.
You can also create your own words by printing out the 3-lined paper template below.
