Spring has arrived and the flowers, greenery, bees, and bugs are plentiful! These Bees and Bugs Pre-Writing Practice printables are a fun way to bring Spring activities into the classroom. Pre-writing practice is important for developing skills that are needed for formal writing. Using this activity in your learning will add excitement and fun to pre-writing practice!

Bees and Bugs Pre-Writing Practice
These pre-writing practice printables are a fun, seasonal way to strengthen very important writing skills. Those include fine motor skills, pencil control, and directionality – just to name a few.
Young students should be exposed to practicing these skills regularly. I like to also use multi-sensory methods by using sensory writing trays or writing in play dough.
How to Use the Pre-Writing Practice Printables
These Bees and Bugs Pre-Writing Practice printables include both a color and a black & white version.
For repeated use, just print the color version and laminate and you are all set to go! The black & white version is fun for students to color themselves.

A helpful idea, if you do not have a laminator is to create a “flip file.” Easily make a flip file by using binders filled with 3-hole plastic sleeves. Just slip the pre-writing printables into the plastic sleeves and give each student a dry-erase marker. In doing so, the writing line can easily be erased and the printables can be used over and over again.
Add all your pre-writing practice printables into the flip file binders. Create a fip file for each student. The pages can be used multiple times and stored easily too!
Later, you can add letter formation printables to the flip file in a progressive manner. These files come in handy if you need to fill a few quiet minutes in your school day.
