Cutting

Cutting Practice Book

 

Cutting gives young children independent movements of each finger. Cutting with scissors works on the separation of two sides of the hand and strengthens hand muscles. Bilateral coordination is also addressed when they have to hold the scissors in one hand and paper in the other. 
 
Often, you will see kids with their elbow all the way out to the side and the scissors upside down when they are cutting. An easy fix for this is to have them hold a piece of paper or a manilla folder between their arm and side to help them to stabilize their arm and bring their shoulder down. Then, they can hold the scissors correctly. The other thing I do is draw eyeballs on the scissors to cue them to the right position. Cutting on a line and switching directions are great visual motor activities. 
 
The positioning of the scissors in a child’s hand also starts to work on the tripod grasp. It is important to educate your administrators as to why scissors are so important in kindergarten and preschool as it is a precursor for handwriting. Cutting, along with coloring, also help with focus and attention. If I have a child that does not want to write, I let them do some coloring and cutting activities, and they are able to calm themselves.
 
If your kid’s preschool has started teaching cutting papers with scissors, there is nothing to be worried about. You, too, can grab a blunt tip paper scissor and start helping your preschool kid with scissors because scissor cutting comes with significant benefits in your child’s development.
 
For obvious reasons, your kid’s little fingers and their limited holding ability makes it challenging for a bit of preschooler to be proficient in his paper cutting talents. But, if they learn to cut with scissors ( link), you will see a notable change in his or her snipping talent in no time. This change has come due to some underlying life-changing benefits of scissor cutting.
 
Scissor cutting is an important fine motor skill, which can help lay the foundation for good pencil control. When your child is holding the scissors correctly, then cutting out will help strengthen your child’s hand muscles, particularly the muscles that will be used for handwriting.
 
Cutting out a shape involves bilateral coordination between the hand holding the scissors and the hand holding the paper. In addition, your child needs to visually focus on the line in order to guide the hands, and also needs to plan how to get the scissors in and out of corners.

Cutting allows a child to build up the little muscles in their hands with the open and close motion. These muscles are so important for writing, painting, and doing every day things like brushing your teeth, eating with utensils, and getting dressed.
 
Cutting requires children to use their eyes and hands in unison to accomplish the cutting task. Eye-hand co-ordination is important for catching/throwing balls, eating with a spoon, and zipping a jacket.
 
Cutting encourages your child to use both sides of the body at the same time while each hand is performing its own task. When cutting a shape, a child must hold the paper with one hand while the other hand is opening and closing the scissors and moving forward to cut. This is essential for tasks like zipping up a coat or pants, washing dishes, and opening an envelope.
 
Cutting out shapes takes concentration and attention to detail. Both skills are necessary for success not only in the classroom but in every day life. The ability to sustain focus is essential to being able to read books, listen to instructions and complete many other classroom tasks.
