✍️ English groups

📑 Informative Writing Unit

🦇 October writing lesson plans

✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors 

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • Strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • Build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • Improve hand-eye coordination
  • Develop focus and attention. 

These skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe. Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
