We are working a lot on shapes and pre-writing skills this month. I made penguin shape tracers for the children to use in our writing center. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out.
I laminated all of the shape tracers and set them out with crayola washable markers. I made the tracers with the same shapes on them and then with mixed shapes on them. Children were free to choose which tracers they wanted to use.
In this activity children trace the shapes with washable markers. We then talk about what shapes are on each tracer. As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is where the penguin letter sequence can also be found.
