Benefits of Using the Cutting Practice Worksheets

Teaching your early learner to use scissors is an important skill with multiple benefits.

  • Learning to use scissors helps a child develop focus as he looks at the paper and determines where to cut.
  • Scissor skills work and strengthen a child’s hand muscles.
  • Using scissors builds fine motor muscles that will be used for other tasks such as handwriting.
  • Scissor skills boost two-handed coordination.
  • When your student finishes a cutting page, he will develop confidence that he can complete a task.
  • You can also use this fine motor activity to help your student learn to think of others. Have your student glue her finished project to a piece of construction paper and give it to a friend or family member.

If your student is brand new to cutting, you may want to try these scissors specially designed to help kids learn a proper cutting motion.
