Gingerbread Man Pre-Writing Tracing : The Lines Tracing
This pack is made with 3-4 years old in mind.
With that being said, we would start with some basic lines tracing first, before we go into complicated tracing.
Pre-Writing Tracing #1: Horizontal Tracing
We start with horizontal line tracing because that is among the lines that toddlers usually writes randomly.
With provided lines, they can focus on tracing straight horizontal lines.
Pre-Writing Tracing #2: Vertical Tracing
Next is tracing vertical lines.
Vertical lines make up letters such as the uppercase letters of D, E, F and more.
It also makes up numbers such as number 1 and number 4.

Let’s help the Gingerbread man get to his pile of cookies by tracing these castle lines!
Pre-Writing Tracing #4: Diagonal Tracing
Diagonal lines tracing is the foundation of zigzag lines tracing.
It makes up the letters that has diagonal lines such as uppercase letter Q, letter R and letter Z.
Pre-Writing Tracing #5: Zigzag Tracing
And then, lets do some zigzag tracing.

Pre-Writing Tracing #6: Waves Tracing
A more challenging lines but quite meaningful, is the waves tracing.
I included 5 types of waves tracing in this pack.
Waves lines are the lines that shape the letter s, o, p, lowercase letter q, letter r, letter m, letter n and more.
It also makes up the numbers such as number 2, number 3 and number 5.

Pre-Writing Tracing #7: Shapes Tracing
There are 8 types of shapes to be traced in this pack.
There are circles, triangles, square and rectangles, trapezoids (4 sides shapes), diamonds (4 sides shapes), pentagon, hexagon and octagon.
We started with circles because that’s the most easiest for preschoolers to draw.
Pre-Writing Tracing #8: Numbers Tracing
When all of the above has been done, now is the time for a bit tricky and more meaningful tracing.
We’ll start to trace some numbers first.
In this pack, the numbers already have tracing lines, so you just have to follow the lines.
This Gingerbread man number tracing mat can also serve as counting mat.
For each numbers, there are Gingerbread man and Gingerbread girl in corresponding to the numbers.
For instance, number 5 would show 5 Gingerbread man.
While tracing, your kids can do some counting!

To add more fun, I’ve added some Words Tracing activity.
No, your kids won’t have to be able to read those words.
It’s just an introduction of letter tracing for them.
The words to be traced include ‘Cookie’, ‘Milk’, ‘Gingerbread’, Hot Chocolate and ‘Gingerhouse’.
