Scissor Activity

T is working on scissor activities to strengthen his cutting skills.  This week, he specifically is working on snipping.

He snips pieces from 1" strips of colored paper.

I love his look of concentration.  :)

Then, he puts the pieces onto a square of laminating film...

which I laminate and display in a cardstock frame.

You might notice in the first photograph that I put a smiley face sticker on the handle of the scissors...to help T remember to hold his scissors with his thumb up.  He should be able to "see the smiley face" when he is cutting.

Additionally, we discussed scissors safety yesterday...and each day, I am focusing on helping T hold his scissors correctly.

The art curriculum we are using this school year is from Artistic Pursuits.  This scissor activity is presented in section two of the book, The Way They See It by Brenda Ellis.
