In this handwriting activity, spatial orientation ability is practiced in the room and on the sheet. Following the lines precisely requires good hand-eye coordination and precision. It is important that the exercises are performed slowly and accurately. The smaller the squares, the smaller the drawing movements and the more difficult the exercise.
Good spatial orientation skills allow letters to be written evenly on the lines, maintaining the correct size and shape. This contributes to handwriting that is aesthetically pleasing and legible. In order for children to orient themselves on the two-dimensional surface (on the page), it is important that they first have different experiences in the three-dimensional space.
