tracing shapes: workbook 2.1

tracing squares - large 

Why tracing activities are important

Tracing activities stimulate eye - hand coordination and visual-motor integration. When we follow (trace) dotted lines, our eyes simultaneously follow and compare evolving lines with original shapes. Our brains than initiate hand and fingers micro-movements to correct the direction of the line. This process strengthen visual-motor integration and fine-motor hand and fingers movements control.  

Worksheets and activities in this workbook

Activities in this workbook are designed for strengthening visual-motor integration by tracing dotted or dashed squares. Template squares differ in size. In some activities dotted squares are accompanied with outer or inner squares intended to help children while drawing. Activities and tasks difficulty increase throughout the workbook by decreasing size of squares.
