Get your scissors and glue ready!


Today we will be doing some cutting and pasting! In this post, you will find activity sheets with two levels- errorless and advanced. Take your pick! Or both to work on levelling up!


Cut and Paste (errorless) 


What is it

Cut and paste farm animals on different scenes according to different shapes.





Teaching objective

  1. Develop fine motor skills

  2. Cutting along the line


How to use

Cutting

  • First, get a child-friendly pair of scissors. Make sure it is not too small and not too big. One side should fit the thumb, while the other side fits the index and middle finger. The fit should be SNUG.

  • Practice cutting straight lines before circles.    

  • If your child is not ready to cut circles, it’s ok! You can model and cut the circles out for him, while he practices waiting. 

Pasting

  • If your child does not know how to apply glue, get a coloured glue stick that will allow him to see the area he is applying the glue to visibly. 

  • Paste the animals you find on the farm. (Comment “Pigs live on the farm”)


Teaching tips

Cutting

  • Thicken the dotted lines with a marker to provide a more obvious visual prompt with where to cut.  

  • Praise your child for good looking and aiming when cutting!

Pasting

  • Draw a cross or dot to help child to know where to paste

  • Praise your child for good listening to your instructions!
