tracing shapes: workbook 4.1
tracing basic shapes
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 basic geometric shapes. Template shapes differ in size. In some activities dotted shapes are accompanied with outer or inner shapes intended to help children while drawing. Activities and tasks difficulty increase throughout the workbook by decreasing size of shapes.
