These are very early activities for writing, writing preparation. Often, we do these on a chalkboard, sometimes we will actually have them on a ditto and let the children pick from a stack of dittos, but these are the early writing. I start by writing dashes, lines and things in the first box, and what their goal is to finish that. When I'm presenting, I show them dot, slash, slash, circle, X, line; and I show them exactly how I write it, so they know how to hold a pencil. Dot, line, line, circle, X, and line. Then have them trace them again; dot. Can you make your own, dot, dot, dot, dot? Trace the slash and make a new one. Then have them trace and repeat. Trace and make their own. Trace and make their own. After they have mastered doing this activity, I will just put one here, and have them just do the whole entire page, or often I will put a dash, a line, a dash, a line and then have them repeat it in the next box, which is a little more difficult. The next step after this is actually to do the letters of the alphabet. We always start with the main lines and dashes for writing preparation.
