How to Use the Crab Shapes Tracing Worksheets
You can simply print the pages and let your student trace the crab shapes with a crayon, pencil, or marker.
However, if you want to reuse the pages, laminate them or use them with Dry Erase Sleeves or page protectors and a dry erase marker.
If your student isn’t ready to write, your student can use a variety of manipulatives to “trace” the crab shapes.
You can try red yarn, pipe cleaners, playdough, or even small red hot candies to place around the shapes.
Here is a sample of the tracing pages with Wikki Stix. Wikki Stix are waxed yarn, and they are a fun manipulative to use with these tracing pages.
