These worksheets were created to help your student draw horizontal and vertical lines. This will help them form letters such as Aa, Bb, Dd, E, Ff, Hh, Ii, Jj, Kk, Ll, Mm, Nn, Pp, Rr, Tt, u, and Z, as well as shapes such as squares, rectangles, and more.
I suggest starting with the widest lines first. Their tracing may not be great when they first start using these worksheets, that is normal and expected as they are learning to write by repeat these worksheets they will improve. When they improve with the widest lines, let them progress to the thinner lines, and eventually to the thinnest lines. Let them take their time and avoid looking for perfection. The goal is to simply prepare them for writing by letting them get familiar with writing neatly in different directions.
If they seem frustrated, encourage them no matter how off the mark their tracing may be, “Hey I know you can do this!” or “I am proud of you for trying. I know you will get better!” Let them have a break and return to it later. My little one used to get so frustrated she would not try any longer with regular worksheets which is why I created these simple worksheets to break down parts of the letters first. It helps to keep it light and fun!
A quick tip: You may save on ink and paper by printing the worksheets once and laminating them or put the worksheets in sleeve protectors and use a wet erase marker. Dry erase markers work as well but they may erase too easily.
