What Are the Benefits of Tracing for Preschoolers?

Tracing lines can help develop multiple skills for your preschool students. In addition to building fine motor readiness, tracing also develops other essential skills.

Tracing can do the following for your student:

  • Refines pre-writing skills
  • Builds hand-eye coordination
  • Increases concentration and focus
  • Encourages drawing and creativity
  • Promotes confidence

What’s Included in the Insects Tracing Pages Printable Pack?

The printable file includes the following pages:

  • Three full color pages with tracing exercises.
  • Three black and white pages with tracing exercises.

The pages also include prompts to entice your student to trace. Some examples of the prompts include:

  • Help the moth fly toward the moon.
  • Help the cricket find a spot to hide.
  • Help the bee pollinate the flowers.
  • Help the butterfly find a leaf to lay her eggs.
  • Help the dragonfly zip to the cattail.

These prompts will provide your student with a sense of purpose while completing the tracing exercises. Finishing a page will help build your student’s confidence.

Preparing the Insects Tracing Pages

  1. Decide if you will use the black and white version or the full color version.
  2. Print the pages.
  3. If using the black and white version, give your student a crayon or pencil to trace the lines. If your student hasn’t mastered the pincher grip, use a broken crayon piece to help your student hold the crayon correctly.
  4. If using the full color version of the Insects Tracing Pages, laminate them. Alternatively, you could put them in page protectors or dry-erase pockets. Let your student use a dry-erase marker to trace the lines.

When you model how to use the tracing pages, show your student how to move from left to right.
