How can I use this resource?

Explore graphomotoric scaling with 27 engaging exercises. These worksheets contain graphomotoric scaling exercises designed to simplify concentrated work with targeted size variations. The scale is dictated is by exercise bars that change in height. In this case, the scale goes from large to small and back again, meaning that large characters gradually become smaller and then larger again. The exercises are suitable for both improving handwriting skills and as preparation for drawing and painting. They can also be used as warm-up exercises for learning to write or to promote graphomotoric writing and learning competencies not only for children, but also for adults and the elderly.

How to enhance handwriting skills?

Handwriting skills involve complex psychomotor processes, emphasizing practicing individual movements and applying them to diverse tasks. Motor skills for writing involve complex psychomotoric processes. Among other things, it’s important that individual movements are not only practiced to perfection in isolation but that, after some repetition, they’re then applied to other, varied tasks (such as by scaling up or down). In this way, you learn to apply the movements to other, similar tasks. Repetition is especially important with graphomotoric exercises. You can only attain a certain level of skill by drawing a lot and thereby developing finger and hand dexterity. It’s best to start with colored pencils, later you can use lead pencils and then also felt-tip pens. The drawing of simple graphic characters here is a preliminary step to writing. The characters should remain between the lines. As you go along, the characters should get smaller and then larger again. The proportions and the distance between the characters remain the same. Frequent repetition trains the fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and stamina.
