Easy No-Prep Prewriting Practice Solid & Dashed Printables (Free)

Not all nids are ready for a small dashed line when pre-writing practice lines. And they might need just a little more help with the start and stop when tracing lines. And these preschool prewriting printables are perfect for that.

These have been a favorite on the site because they have green for start and red for stop on each line. This allows kids to know where they start on the prewriting line and where they stop.

It puts familiar road signs themes in their prewriting writing practice.

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.

The Pre writing Practice Solid & Dashed Printables come with a start and stop to help the preschool age kids working on their prewriting writing skills.

This is similar to the prewriting pages in the Romping & Roaring ABC Packs. You have two options for the page type a thick solid prewriting line or a thick dashed prewriting line.

Each of these is wide enough to help prek kids trace their pre writing lines. These prek prewriting worksheets have been a huge hit at our house. My youngest loves having the start and stop when tracing lines.

You can see below the two options with prewriting printable with dished lines or prewriting sold lines.

Things to use with these preschool prewriting printables

These are just a few of the items you could use with these worksheets. They are a mix of different writing items and hands-on items.

Ways to use the PreK Prewriting Worksheets

There are several ways to use these beginning prewriting worksheets. I thought I would share a few of our favorites.

Trace the Pre Writing Page with Markers

You can trace the sold line or the dash liens with markets. You don’t have to limit kids to markers. There are so many fun things to use on the pages to trace the prewriting lines like crayons, pencils, or colored pencils.

Prewriting with Pecil Hold

Kids don’t always hold the pencil correctly when they start with prewriting. So this fun pencil grips helps make holding the pencil easier when doing prewriting lines.

Re-Using Prewriting Worksheets

You might have kids that need to work on prewriting a lot. And the best way to do that is to reuse the prewriting worksheets. You can put the pre writing page laminate or put in a sheet protector. Then you can trace the prewriting lines over and over.

Use the Prewriting lines with Small Items

If you are not ready for prewriting then start using the solid prewriting lines with small items likes mini erasers. We get a lot of ours at Target. You can have them place the eraser along the prewriting lines on the page.

Animal erasers work great because you can have them face the direction you would trace the line.

Use the Prewriting lines with Playdough

These prewriting lines work great for playdough lines. YOu have going to find a mix of mix and some might be too advance to trace but will work great for starting with a playdough mat for the lines.
