Prewriting skills are the foundational skills that a child must master before being ready or able to learn how 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:

  1. Vertical Lines by 2 years of age
  2. Horizontal Lines by 2.5 years of age
  3. Circles by 3 years of age
  4. Crosses by 3.5 - 4 years of age
  5. Squares by 4 years of age
  6. Diagonal Lines by 4.5 years of age
  7. X's by 5 years of age

Attached you'll find 11 pages that address:

  • jumping, aiming, and scribbling to a given area
  • drawing short, medium, and long vertical
  • drawing short, medium, and horizontal lines

Each of these pages include varying amounts of visual cues, depending on your child(ren)'s needs, as well as their progression.

As a school-based occupational therapist, I provide a list of drawing tips at the beginning of the prewriting packet to ensure the child(ren) 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 vertical lines, should not begin to work on drawing horizontal lines. Likewise, a child who has not yet mastered finding and scribbling to an area, should not begin to work on keeping their coloring within given lines.

This 11-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. When working 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!

ENJOY! Please provide me with your feedback.
