Fine Motor Practice for Prewriting

Prewriting...  So IMPORTANT

Prewriting is the starter skills to writing letters.  When I work with my students, I remind families WHY I work so hard on fine motor practice and prewriting tasks. Prewriting strokes arrive in the following order... just like baby teeth!!

Vertical line (top to bottom)
Horizontal line (left to right)
Cross (top to bottom, left to right)
X (left to right, right to left - start at the top)
