Let's make tracing easy! These tracing boards provide plenty of practice opportunities to develop muscle memory so your children can achieve "automatic writing" in no time!
- Fine Motor Skills (Handwriting): Children first learn to write letters by using their eyes (visual system) to guide the movement of their hands. This is the visual-motor part or eye-hand coordination of writing. They then develop the skill to visually analyze form and space then connect the image of a shape/number/letter to a motor plan. So vision together with kinesthesia (awareness of how to move the hand) are crucial skills to achieve mastery in writing.
- Use: A wooden stylus is used to trace letters on the board. The grooves on these wooden tracing boards serve as a guide for children to master both the visual-motor and kinesthetic part of handwriting.
- Dimension & Quality: These wooden boards are made of high-quality beech wood with a sheen finish. Beechwood is known for its durability, hardness and strength. The boards are 1cm thick, 11x11 inches (letters) 8.5x11 inches (numbers&shapes); wooden stylus is 4.3 inches
