Tracing circles worksheets for preschoolers

Before a child learns to write, she needs to develop a solid pencil hold first. This skill is acquired best by letting her scribble and draw freely from her toddler years.

Many parents tend to keep pens and pencils away from toddlers in order to keep them from drawing on furniture or walls.

I know that feeling, believe me! 

I can’t even imagine the disaster if my toddlers were left alone with a set of markers. But thanks goodness for the Crayola washable markers. They come off so easily from skin, the floor, furniture, and even wall.

This alone has encouraged me to implement more drawing into our daily routine and took the worries off my mind.

And I know it’s the best way I can help my toddlers develop a solid pre-writing foundation.

Once a child develops a good hold of a pencil, she usually becomes naturally interested in more structured activities such as tracing, coloring, dot to dots, etc.

The age differs from one child to another, but preschool is usually the time when scribbles turn into more intentional drawings.

Therefore tracing pictures, shapes or letters is a great way for preschoolers to practice their pre-writing skills.
