Why connecting dots activities are important

Connecting dots stimulate child’s eye - hand coordination. When children connect two dots or multiple dots in a string with drawing tools, they simultaneously follow and compare their evolving lines with printed dots. This process strengthen visual-motor integration and fine-motor hand and fingers movements control. 


Connecting dots activities stimulate acquisition of basic graphomotor, fine-motor and pre-writing skills and competences which later play important role in development of writing and other important fine-motor skills.

Worksheets and activities in this workbook


Activities in this workbook stimulate children’s ability to draw straight  lines and ability to change direction of drawing. Tasks are set in form of strings of dots which children connect by drawing. Strings of dots differ in their length and spacing between the dots.

Children should not change the position of the sheet, or rotate it, while drawing. They should be encouraged to draw each line in a single stroke, without stopping or shifting the drawing tool.

Activities and tasks difficulty increase throughout the workbook in three ways:

  • by increasing length of the strings of dots,

  • by changing inclination and complexity of the lines,

  • by increasing distance between dots.

Clicking the        sign on the top right of the frame will open the menu.

Clicking the printer icon will start printing the workbook.
