Tracing Lines Busy Bag (Free Printable)

To help him practice tracing and controlling his writing, I made a Tracing Lines Busy Bag for him. This free printable for tracing lines is a perfect introduction to writing for preschoolers.  This preschool busy bag idea is a perfect way to put those fine motor skills into practice and let children begin to learn to write.

Fine Motor Skills First

I am a firm believer in working on fine motor skills through play and not just writing and tracing worksheets. I don’t push holding a pencil or writing until they show interest. In this case, I am following my child’s lead and providing him with the next step in learning how to write. This will be added to our busy bag rotation and will not be used daily unless he chooses to. I will continue to provide lots of natural ways to develop fine motor skills and continuing to teach proper pencil grip. I encourage you to do the same until your young child is ready and showing interest.

    How do you down load the free printable. I can’t find where the button/spot to click on to get the worksheet s I am interested in. Am I missing something?

  2. HI, these are so great. How do I download them. Thank you.

  3. Thanks for these. I know my son will really enjoy doing this. I printed on different colored card stock just to switch things up a little.

  4. Hi, I was able to print these free printable pre-writing papers last week, but I want to print another one and now cannot figure out how to do it :/ It is prompting me to register at the “teachers pay teachers” website, but I don’t remember having to do that last week… What am I doing wrong? 🙂 Thanks so much, these are super awesome by the way! I laminated the ones I made last week to make them reusable with dry erase markers 🙂

    • Hi Jessica,
      I’m in the process of adding all the freebies to my blog shop. The Teachers Pay Teachers is only for non-U.S. residents. If you hit “add to cart” it will go through a check-out process (even though it is free). You will be able to make an account with all of your free downloads available in one spot should you ever need to download them again. Sorry for the confusion.
