How To Draw... & Trace
Developing a strong grip is an essential skill for all children using a pencil or pen all day. Without the correct grip, posture or positioning, children could start to lose attention, may get cramp in their hands and may even find writing a chore because it hurts so much to hold the writing tools. One activity that can be fun and accessible to all children in supporting their grip and developing strong hand-eye coordination is a simple tracing activity. You might find that some children race through this but have they been accurate? Secondly, following a series of How To activities will help with concentration and the ability to follow instructions as well as getting that hand moving fluidly across the page.
