Polar Bear Winter Tracing Page

Big shape tracing! It is one of my favorite resources to make. Tracing BIG shapes is a really effective way to engage students in pre-writing to get them ready for letter formation and formal handwriting lessons. 


After hours and hours of free, self-selected scribble, drawing and creative play, your little one might be ready to manoeuvre a pencil with direction and control. It is time for 'handwriting'!

I like to progress through

  • big shape tracing
  • small shape tracing
  • pattern line tracing (downstroke, hop, dive)
  • shapes with internal pattern lines
  • letters and numbers

I created this polar bear for a fun winter themed pre-writing tracing activity.

I have also included an additional copy of each design that includes a simple sentence for students to read after they have traced. They could also trace these words with a broad-tip marker to ignite their interest in letters.
