Tracing is a multisensory strategy that cements letter forms and words into motor memory.

Using the first 2 fingers of writing hand to trace on a table, on paper, or any textured surface will anchor images in long-term memory, where they are easily retrieved.

Use tracing with your students when teaching new sounds and Sight Words as well as when correcting reading errors.

When the tracing slide appears in your Sonday System or Essentials digital kit, remind your students to trace during that activity.
