Wipe Clean Workbook Tracing and Pen Control (Wipe Clean Workbooks) Spiral-bound – June 8, 2010 by Roger Priddy (Author) Review
I bought a few of these books in the same series for my son and daycare kids to get a jumpstart on writing. My 2 year old, who is fairly intelligent, doesn’t really grasp the concept of following the dotted tracing lines, and instead prefers to ‘color the kitty’s eyes’ or color in the pictures. My 3 year old loves it though, and immediately understood that we start our marker on the big purple dot, then follow the dotted lines. Within minutes she was doing all sorts of pen control exercises that I didn’t know she could do! It really helped her learn the most comfortable way to hold the marker and be able to control it the most, which quickly led to her being able to write her whole name!!!While my son isn’t using the book for its sole purpose, he’s still learning things, and I know he’ll grow into it. I’ve found that Expo low-odor dry erase markers work best with kids in these books, but make sure you erase the pages everyday!! We made the mistake of leaving the writing in the book for a couple days, and it stained the pages a bit. -Read Reviews-
My daughter loves to practice tracing in this book! I did buy some additional dry erase markers, since they can dry out pretty fast. I will say, if not wiped off right away, it becomes a real bugger to clean. I ended up putting some rubbing alcohol on a rag and it wiped right off. This book has definitely helped my daughter with control when writing and has helped teach her how to make shapes. She’s still a bit wobbly with it, but practice makes perfect! I love that it’s reusable too, so we aren’t wasting a bunch of paper. Highly recommend.
