Pre-writing activities

Eaton is doing progress with tracing cursive letters. Most of the time he does them correctly the way it should be written. But sometimes he makes mistakes so I correct him gently pointing the way it should go.
I plan to post the rest of cursive letters as Eaton is asking for more words too. I am a little behind with doing new cursive sheets. Sorry for that! The next step I plan to do is to create worksheets with words and very short sentences using smaller font. And instead of tracing on a sheet protector Eaton will be doing it with a pen on a paper. That step requires some more precise work from Eaton. So far, Eaton likes doing it and tracing cursive letters is his daily activity.

Pani Tanguera i Gabis,
Dziekuje serdecznie za nominacje, pisalam wczesniej ale mialam problem z postem. Teraz go nie mam :)

I have few books Eaton uses for writing non cursive, but I don't use any specific website for it.

Tracing activity we do based on Kumon books.They have books dedicated to tracing. Sheets looks like easy mazes but the point for a toddler is to trace it, follow the path and not go beyond black lines.So the baby needs to be focus more instead of looking for a solution to a maze. I like it a lot because Eaton read directions and follows them if he likes the activity :) Other tracing activities I have from books I bought in bookstores. Nothing special, just tracing a lot of different shapes, letters etc...
Have a great day Rua, :)
