Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about how to safely hold and use scissors. They will learn the proper grasp for holding scissors. Students will also learn how to use glue sticks. Students will engage in fine motor skills activities to strengthen hand muscles.
As a former kindergarten teacher, I have witnessed the stress and frustration that inexperienced students have using scissors in class. In building fine motor skills and learning proper scissor usage, students will enter school with confidence and will be ready to learn without unnecessary stress. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
Child-size scissors Glue Stick Blank paper (any color) Two cutting practice pages available to print from the class files Crayons or colored pencils (optional)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Scissors are sharp, so adult supervision is recommended.
