Why use tracing pages?
Tracing worksheets provide children with an opportunity to strengthen fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
First, when you provide your child with tracing pages, you give them an opportunity to practice pencil grip and pencil control.
Finally, they will strengthen hand-eye coordination as they practice tracing the dotted lines from the black dot to the bottom of the line.
Remember, tracing the lines is a difficult skill. So, start with straight or slightly curved lines. Print these pages as often as needed until your child is proficient.
Gradually increase the difficulty of the lines. Starting with the simplest lines and gradually making them harder allows your child to succeed over and over again!
How else can you use these printables?
You can use these Christmas printables as coloring sheets if you print them on white paper. After coloring Santa’s face and hat, kids can complete the tracing practice portion.
If you want to use these as simple tracing practice pages, you can print them on colored printer paper for a fun twist.
If you need cutting practice pages, these pages can work for that, as well. Have kids start at the bottom of the page and cut the beard to the big black dot.
