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.
