  • Pre-writing practice develops fine motor muscles which enable us to grip a pencil correctly and have control over the pressure as well as control over the movement and direction of our writing.These skills do not come naturally to all children and need to be practiced. Like so many other skills that need development, making it fun is the key to practicing these fine motor skills!


Use these fun, spider themed pre-writing practice strips to do just that by helping the spiders to their webs!
