Why Line Printing?

Children using the process of line printing often form constructions that they might not be able to draw or write, or might not consider drawing or writing. Children just entering the stage of representational drawing sometimes make a huge leap when offered line printing as a tool for composing pictures, letters and designs.

Those individuals struggling with developing fine motor skills will find a new fluent means of expression and a tool for constructing knowledge.

Though it may be difficult for children to draw straight lines, they can easily master the process of line printing. The ability to make a series of marks and control their placement not only precedes, but is also essential to drawing, reading and writing.
