Pre-Writing Cards

$6.00 AUD inc. GST

Prepare your little learner to start writing with this set of 32 pre-writing cards!

Looking for ways to prepare your child for school? This set of 32 pre-writing cards are a wonderful way to get your child practising the key strokes needed to start forming the letters of the alphabet! This packet also includes 8 hands-on activity ideas to use with the cards!

What’s included?

  • “Pre-writing skills” page outlining the key strokes children from ages 2 to 5 must master before starting to write the letters of the alphabet
  • 8 hands-on activity ideas for using with pre-writing cards (including writing in sand, shaving cream and with chalk on the pavement).
  • A set of 32 pre-writing cards to be used individually or bound into a booklet

These cards will give your child the head start they need to become successful writers at school!

Simply print off and laminate the cards. Your little learners may use them as a guide to copy the patterns in a tray of sand or salt or you might put them together on a ring and your little learners can write directly onto the cards with an erasable marker or trace the lines with their fingers.

“Love these cards. Use them for salt trays, shaving cream and even dry erase! Excellent for my preschoolers!”

Before your child can begin to copy or form the letters of the alphabet, they must be able to complete 8 pre-writing strokes, all of which are included in this packet. Once your child reaches 5 years of age, they should be able to confidently copy the ‘x’ shape and then they’re ready to start writing!

Why are these products digital downloads and not shipped to my home?

Our decision to offer digital downloads aligns with our commitment to providing you with immediate access to our creative resources! By choosing digital, you can start enjoying our products instantly without the wait for shipping. Plus, it’s a more eco-friendly option, reducing paper and packaging waste. It also allows us to keep costs low and offer affordable pricing. We hope you enjoy the convenience and flexibility our digital downloads offer!

How do I access and download the resource?

Getting started is a breeze! After making your purchase, you’ll receive an email with your receipt and download links.

You can also access these resources from your account on the website at any time. If you have any trouble accessing your files, just shoot us an email and we’ll be happy to help!

Do I need any special equipment or supplies to use this resource?

Our printables are designed to be user-friendly and require basic supplies you likely already have at home, such as crayons, scissors and glue. We intentionally keep our activities simple and accessible so you can enjoy them without the need for costly materials. A printer is very much a requirement though and a laminator is a handy bonus but not a neccessity. We love using Write and Wipe Sleeves from Amazon US* or Amazon Australia*

Can I share my purchase with friends or other staff at my school?

While we love that you’d like to share, it is against our Terms of Use to email or redistribute products purchased or downloaded from our website. Each resource is for single classroom or personal use only. You will be breaking copyright laws if you share the resources you have purchased. This includes but is not limited to emailing files, uploading to shared drives and sharing logins. If your colleague or friend wants a copy, you can forward the link to the product in the store so they can purchase a single use license for themselves.
