Toddlers love to scribble as they explore their creativity and put their ideas on paper.
It is also considered “pre-writing” – a task that gets them one step closer to writing letters and words.
When you add tracing to your little one’s drawing time, it helps refine those pre-writing skills, laying a strong foundation for drawing and emerging writing.
For this activity, we used glitter to trace the word CRAB. Using their fingers, students traced each letter, one at a time. While doing so, the learned about the sound that each letter makes. Finally, they enjoyed the feeling of glitter on their fingers and especially washing it off!
