Filling a shape with lots of straight lines is a great way for younger children to begin to work on pencil control - and shape recognition. Here we ask them to draw straight lines across the circle from left to right, and start them off with a couple of dotted lines to trace over.
Handwriting Readiness - Fill a Circle with Straight Lines

By drawing straight lines from left to right, children are getting in some excellent pencil control practice - and learning the shape of a rectangle, too.
