I used to teach preschool and the “writing center” was actually a favorite center in the classroom and my preschoolers loved “writing” letters and “sending” them, making Christmas lists, and cutting out shapes along with a variety of other activities. That was one of my favorite areas in the classroom as well and I was constantly adding activities to it. When I was pregnant I told myself that I would do the same for my children to help them practice pre-writing skills but now that my children are preschool age and I’m working full-time I find that I just don’t have the time to create all those fun activities that I used to.
Thankfully there are people like Sandra from Little Learning Lovies who creates and sells fun printable sets for young children to practice their fine motor skills! We recently received a preschool pre-writing set from her and I was so excited to open the package and discover lots of quality worksheets! The worksheets practiced tracing, counting, coloring, hand-eye coordination, letters, and more! Here is Jacob doing some of our favorite worksheets:
I thought the printables had really cute images and liked the variety I found in the pages. Even though there were multiple pages for each “skill”, they were all different from each other. Take tracing for example. There are over 50 pages that have children practice tracing. They trace letters and shapes and draw lines helping butterflies get to flowers and squirrels to acorns.
I got this set free in order to complete this review but the prices in the Little Learning Lovies store are very reasonable. She also creates items for older children. Some of the items she has in her store include file folder games, workbox tags, and math cards.
