Occupations - Tracing lines

What is it

  • Fine motor practice sheets - Tracing various lines

Teaching Objectives

  • Trace a variety of lines (vertical, horizontal, zigzag)

  • Learn about various occupations and the different tools they use

How to use

  • Start off with the basic lines first

  • Proceed to the maze sheet (prompted) when your child is more competent

  • Finally, complete the maze sheets (unprompted, without arrows) for a challenge

Teaching tips

  • Ensure that your child is holding the pencil correctly, tripod grip

  • If a pencil is too thin for your child to manipulate, use thicker writing tools such as markers and crayons first

  • Use a finger to trace over the line before using a writing tool for you as a guide

  • Verbalise the occupation and the tools they use for your child to learn the association (eg. Help the policeman get to the police car)

Embed more learning opportunities

  • Receptive language - Point to the chef. Point to the pot.

  • Expressive language - Who is this? What does he need?

  • Describing - Tell me something that the firefighter use
