Cut and Paste Activities
These summer cut and paste worksheets require no preparation. Just print them on regular printer paper. You’ll need the following supplies to complete them:
Teaching ABC order is an essential skill for all ages. In order to properly sort words according to the first letter of each word, students need to have a strong understanding of the alphabet and be able to identify letters clearly and quickly.
This worksheet provides children with an opportunity to alphabetize six summer words to the first letter. They’ll strengthen motor skills as they cut and paste the words in order on the page.
One way that parents and teachers can help kids develop their vocabulary is with labeling exercises. This involves providing an object or picture and having kids identify the various parts or features of that object or figure.
This printable includes two labeling pages. On each one, kids will cut and paste six labels around the pictures.
In order to develop strong writing and reading skills, it is important to practice sequencing sentences. This can be done by completing activities that involve putting words and phrases in the proper order.
The summer sequencing worksheet included in this printable instructs students to cut and paste the words of a short sentence in order. Then, they’ll write the sentence on the lines provided for a little extra handwriting practice.
NOTE: These summer sentence sequencing worksheets will give your kids even more practice.
Tomato Life Cycle
The tomato is a relatively simple plant with a predictable life cycle. It begins its journey as a seed, which goes through several stages as it develops.
Share the book Tomatoes with your kids. It’s a short, nonfiction book demonstrating the life cycle of a tomato. Then, have your children complete the life cycle sequencing worksheet.
