WHY USE CUT AND PASTE PRINTABLES?
Cut and paste printables help provide children with an opportunity to strengthen fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
Provide children with a pair of scissors designed for small hands, and then teach them how to properly hold their scissors.
Have them practice holding the scissors in one and and the paper in the other.
Pasting helps children strengthen hand-eye coordination as they line up the pieces they’ve cut out with the space their to past that paper in.
In addition to these skills, this particular set of worksheets works on both math and literacy skills for kids ages 4-6.
What’s included in the cut and paste pack?
This cut and paste printable pack includes eight math and literacy pages for young learners. Included in this page, you’ll find:
• What Starts With… – Name the featured picture focusing on its beginning sound. Cut and paste objects that begin with the same sound. There is one page in this pack.
• Word Work – Children will color the picture and read the name of the object. Then, they’ll trace the word, write the word, box the word, and stamp the word. Finally, they’ll cut and paste the letters to spell out the word. There are two pages in this pack.
• Shape Sorting – Cut and paste the shaped carrots to feed the same shaped bunny. There are two pages featuring circles, squares, triangles, and stars.
