Cutting Skills

Learning to cut with scissors is the beginning of the development of the hand co-ordination required to learn to write

These little Dragonflies are concentrating very hard on the task at hand....making vegetable labels to place in their garden beds so that they know which seeds are sprouting


There are many benefits to learning to cut with scissors

*Independent movements of each finger

*Strengthens hand muscles

*Bilateral coordination skills (two-handed coordination)

*Visual motor skills (eye-hand coordination)

*Visual perceptual tasks (directionality)

*Fine motor skills (separation of hand, finger dexterity)

*Promotes grasp pattern

*Focus and attention
