This 36-page packet is intended for the use of therapists, teachers, and parents with students and children who are working to improve their visual motor skills, specifically related to drawing prewriting lines.
Prewriting skills are the foundational skills that a child must master before they're able to form letters or numbers. No matter your student/child's age, start where they are now and continue to move forward with each successful mastery. The typical developmental sequence of drawing/forming prewriting lines & shapes is as follows:
Attached you'll find 36 pages that address drawing diagonal lines. Each of these pages include varying amounts of visual cues and levels of difficulty, depending on your child/student's needs.
I provide a note of OT expertise at the beginning of the prewriting packet to ensure the children/students you work with develop a correct pencil grasp and proper positioning habits that will support the development of their visual motor skills, hand strength, and writing stamina.
I advise that these skills should be worked on in progression. A child who has not yet mastered drawing diagonal lines in isolation, should not attempt the fun activities at the end of the packet until they have done so.
Also, students should master the precursor skills of drawing vertical lines, horizontal lines, circles, crosses, and squares before attempting diagonal lines.
This 36-page packet features a heart & penguin theme. In my experience in working with preschoolers, their worksheets must be engaging in order to optimize their attention to a given task as well as to elicit meaning. In my work with preschoolers, I enjoyed regularly making new worksheets according to the given season/holiday - and now I'm sharing what I learned with you! I hope that you have as much fun with them as I have!
