Abstract: The acquisition and development of prerequisites for writing, in preschool age, is essential, as are figures copy. Objective: To study the relation ship between different kinematic variables (process) in children between 4 and 6 years old. Methodology: A cross-sectional observational study was carried out, with a descriptive and correlational research. 110 chil dren participated in the study, 42 children aged 4 years, 44 aged 5 years, and 24 aged 6 years. Results: Process variables vary accord ing to age and figures, but in some situations in a heterogeneous way. Conclusion: The analysis of the process of copy figures provides more detailed information about the handwriting readiness of each child. Its relevance in preschool age is significant, as it can lead to a preventive action, whether diagnostic or intervention. It is important, that in the future children with graphomotor difficulties could be included in the sample to help us to define their graphomotor characteristics.
