D-E-S-E-R-T Tracing

Activities that develop a child’s control of the small muscles of the hands (fine motor skills) allow children to make the precise movements necessary for forming letters and improve hand/eye coordination.


For this activity, we talked about the letters in the word DESERT. We then talked about which sounds each letter makes.


Lastly, we traced the letters D-E-S-E-R-T into yellow sand. Through each week of our desert theme, we picked a different word to study.

During circle (and project) time, we created these words in a variety of ways. Doing so allows your little one to use their different senses to practice their pre-writing and pre-reading skills.
