Pre-Writing Practice

Pre-writing skills are essential for students to be able to develop the ability to hold and move a pencil fluently and effectively.  A major component of pre-writing skills are the pre-writing of shapes.  These are pencil strokes that most letters and numbers are comprised of.  These strokes include l, -, O, +, square, /, X and a triangle.  Below the children are writing l; they followed the line from the top to the bottom.
