Pre-Cutting Skills





Learning Goals:

I am learning to develop my fine and gross motor dexterity. 

I am learning to follow simple instructions.



The focus for this session is to develop children’s finger dexterity,
which is a precursor for learning how to snip, cut and control in using a pair of scissors.


Refer to the document below for some useful advice and suggested activities.
Choose one activity to do for a week to give your child enough time to develop their pre-cutting skills.

This is a quick timed activity.  Before you begin, set the rocket timer to 5 minutes.

Check that your child is sitting comfortably with no distractions around (e.g. turn the TV off).


Again, make sure to do the same fine motor activity daily for a week to develop mastery of skills.
