So what is pre-writing?

Pre-writing is the skill to build to work up to writing letters and other types of writing. It also teaches the direction that we read.

You start out with thick prewriting lines and work to thinner prewriting lines. Then to prewriting patterns that work into writing letters.

This prewriting printable helps kids work on prewriting in a fun prewriting center. You have two sets of dice that are cube dice inserts or foldable dice.

I’m going to show you a few ways you can use this prewriting printable.

Using the Prewriting Printable Dice in a Center

You can use either dice for this but you can see the cube dice roll and then you draw or make what you see on the dice below the dice. You can see how the smile came up and draw the smile in the area below with dry erase markers. Then you wipe it clean and start again.

Prewriting Center Idea

Then put the prewriting practice squares on a ring. Then kids can flip through the cards and trace the matching picture on the page! A fun way to work on prewriting!

    Are these for just shapes or can letters and numbers be made from them?

    This is one of the most ingenious ideas I’ve seen. I absolutely love it and I’m definitely going to use it right away. After doing shapes with my class (the basic circle, square, triange, rectange), I’m also going to use this idea to reinforce identifying the shapes and drawing them too!
    I’m not sure how you intended to use the cards but I’m thinking of using them as play dough mats:)
    Thank you so much for this. (Will post as a great ‘find’ on my blog)
