Every now and then I’ll print out a scissor worksheet for J (just do searches on google and you’ll find lots of options). It’s really good practice. Using scissors requires lots of fine motor skills! Honestly most of the worksheets are too hard for him at this point, but he enjoys them. We really should practice this more often!
So J came up with this activity on his own. One day he was having tons of fun cutting up one of the worksheets and went way beyond just cutting along the dotted lines. He then announced that he had made a puzzle and I looked up to see him refitted all the pieces together!
This has become one more activity he wants to do after scissor practice. We mix up the pieces and he fits them back together like a puzzle.
