Cut em out, match em up, stick em on! Preschool Practice Scissor Skills from the Little Hand Helper series offers a variety of clipping and pasting activities that will help your child practice scissor skills and other important basics such as story order, counting, matching, colors, shapes, and beginning sounds. It s easy! Cut out the images in the back of the book, grab some glue, and stick them on the corresponding pages to complete the exercise. Developing strong fine motor skills through hands-on practice helps kids learn to write. The opening and closing motion of using scissors strengthens muscles in the hands used to hold writing tools such as crayons and pencils. Holding paper with one hand and cutting with another while watching the scissor movement develops eye-hand coordination. The details of the activities themselves build multiple skills important for school success. For example, activities such as finding and cutting out the animals and gluing them next to the scene where they belong, get kids using critical thinking skills finding and cutting out puzzle pieces, then gluing them in the right spot encourages careful observation. Matching the pictures whose names begin with the same sounds as the picture (and word) shown on the page, helps kids concentrate on beginning sounds and letter-picture and word-picture association. Completing these and other activities also helps kids learn to follow directions, and eye-catching illustrations boost focus and motivation. Plus, 68 colorful reward stickers add to the adventure. A Certificate of Achievement inside the back cover rewards your childs completion of the book, and he or she can then display it with pride!
