Trace and Cut Pages for Preschoolers

Pin It

If you have been around the blogosphere and you have preschoolers, I'm sure you've seen many cute, themed tracing worksheets.  Three years ago, I was looking for this type of worksheet to use as pre-writing practice for my son, but I couldn't find any.  Maybe my problem was that I wasn't on Pinterest back then, or maybe people just hadn't started making and sharing them yet, I really don't know.  So, I created just what I needed.

These are not fancy, with cute themes and pretty pictures, but they are exactly what your child will need to master pre-writing skills. Honestly, I get overwhelmed if I have to think of finding just the right pages to complement a particular theme, print them all out, and keep them sorted.  Sometimes it's just nice to have materials that work for everything and get the job done well!

Disclaimer *** I do love all the cute, themed sheets I see all over the place, I'm just saying that sometimes it's nice to have a worksheet that works any day of the year =)

Here are the 6 pages that are included in this download:

How to Use Trace and Cut Pages

  • Print these pages out and laminate them.  Your child can practice tracing them over and over with a dry-erase marker.

  • Print these pages out and have your child write directly on them.  Save them to track his progress.

  • Print these pages out on cardstock for your child to practice cutting along the lines.  The slightly thicker paper will make it easier for them to learn to use scissors.

  • Print these pages on regular paper once your child is comfortable using scissors.

  • However else you can think to use them with your child!
