Spider Pre-Writing Practice Printables

Pre-writing practice is very important in a child’s preparation to write letters and numbers. It develops fine motor muscles which enable them to grip a pencil correctly and have control over the pressure as well as control over the movement and direction of their writing. These free Spider Pre-Writing Practice Printables will be great to have on hand to build up those pre-writing skills this season!

Spider Pre-Writing Practice

One of my favorite quotes to describe the importance of pre-writing skills is:

In short, pre-writing skills are the lines and strokes kids need to master and know BEFORE learning how to print the alphabet.” – Growing Hands-On Kids

These skills do not come naturally to all students and need to be practiced. Like so many other skills that need development, making it fun is the key to practicing these fine motor skills.

Use these fun, spider-themed pre-writing practice strips to do just that by helping the spiders to their webs!

Print, laminate, and cut the printables and give students a dry erase marker to get started.

How to Use the Pre-Writing Practice Printables

To prep, I like to print and laminate the printables. Laminating them makes them reusable which is super helpful if using them in your centers.

Included in these free printables are color strips and black/white versions.

Next, I cut the printables into individual strips.

I add the strips to a small basket with some dry erase markers and my writing center is all set!

Help your kids be aware of the direction. The spider goes from the left to the right -  all the way to the web.

The aim of this activity is for students to go from the spider to the web without lifting the marker. This can be quite hard for little fingers!

Help your kids be aware of the direction. The spider goes from the left to the right – all the way to the web.

*Teacher Tip: If you choose not to laminate the printables, make multiple copies of the pre-writing strips for repeated practice in your centers!
