This pre-writing practice page helps children build some of the necessary fine-motor skills they need to effectively use a pen or pencil. Handwriting requires both fine-motor control and visual perception. Holding a pencil, keeping the pencil on the page, and copying accurately are all necessary for future handwriting success. This page provides a fun, colorful introduction to the skills children need before they begin to learn letter formation. Directions are given in English and Spanish.
