Why use letter tracing booksfor preschoolers?

Asset 5

Just like adults, children can easily become frustrated when they’re not able to do simple actions, often leading to their losing interest in activities that prove to be too difficult.

For many parents and teachers, it’s one of the barriers to getting children interested in picking up a pencil to learn how to write.

Younger children may even shut down or become angry because they are not confident in basic skills such as letter formation.

But wait! There is a solution – and it’s loads of fun!

Clever Eli’s grooved letter tracing books can help build fine motor skills in young children at home or school.

Letter tracing books for toddlers can teach them how to write

Writing is a multi-sensory activity. As young children use the shape, numbers and alphabet tracing book, they are learning how to incorporate language into the form and function of the alphabet letters and grammar. There is a connection between the senses.

Improved language abilities

Kids who use Clever Eli’s letter and number tracing books to write uppercase and lowercase letters trigger a connection between the brain and the hand that helps them improve their vocabulary and language recall.

Using alphabet tracing books to build muscle memory

As little ones practice writing letters and numbers by line tracing, their hands and fingers begin to adjust and retain that muscle memory. Clever Eli’s kids letter tracing book offers a guided practice that will help set up your child for future success at school.

Improved concentration and focus

Alphabet and number tracing books can help improve concentration and focus. Why? Your toddler has to focus on what they are doing. To write, draw and trace along the lines, little ones have to watch where their hands are going and pay attention to the grooves of Clever Eli’s letter shapes and lines.

More use of our preschool letter tracing books ensures your child’s focus improves over time.

Your child’s letter-writing practice is fostering art and creativity
