Tracing activity

About 3 weeks ago I created tracing activity basket for Eaton. There are tons of tracing worksheets available free on internet. I've chosen very easy ones for now.
This basket includes:
1) http://www.englishraven.com/Phonics_starter1.html I downloaded free starter kit with basic lines and curves to prepare Eaton for writing. 

                                      


 2) Easy to trace big pictures from http://www.abcteach.com/directory/fun_activities/coloring_pages/trace_and_color/
3) Tracing shapes from http://1plus1plus1equals1.blogspot.com/2010/07/preschool-printables-shape-tracers.html Because there were small cards I put them together in the file folder.
This video was taken about a month ago when Eaton didn't want to go to sleep at 9:30 pm. He grabbed a tracing book I kept for future activities and he started to play with it. It was a moment when I realized he is ready for some tracing activity.

That looks great! We have had to become creative when it comes to tracing practice. My son hated colour as a young child I and eventually stopped offering it as an option. When the time came that he should be writing and drawing, he really struggled. I know I won't make the mistake of starting this too late again.
