Summer Activities: Practicing Writing with Your Preschooler/Kindergartner

Yesterday I talked about how to beat the summer blahs. Structured activities are a great way to do this, and they don't have to involve a lot of prep or work.

One activity I plan to do with Alex, who just finished a year of preschool (and will be heading off to kindergarten in the fall) is helping him with his writing skills. In school this year, every day when the preschoolers arrived, they were to get out their name books (which had a picture of the child on the front). Inside were places to practice writing their names.

So this summer, I'm going to do the same, but with all of the letters of the alphabet to help Alex get ready for kindergarten.

Creating Custom Printouts for Your Preschooler or Kindergartner to Trace

At KidZone.ws, you can create custom tracing papers that can be used for practicing writing. This is especially helpful if your child is still working on the basics of writing. Here you can choose block, script or cursive writing (which is great for your older kids) and you can type in exactly what you want, so you can create pages with your child's name on it (first and last) or whatever you want them to learn. 

Writing time will be included every day on the daily schedule. Hopefully this will be a fun activity for us to work on together.

What activities are you going to work on with your kids this summer? I could definitely use some ideas!
