Our Cutting Fools!

I pulled out some paper and some scissors the other day and was hoping to practice cutting with them.  The last time we had sat down to practiced had been a few months.  I know I should have been working on this more often, but between dinner, spending time playing or reading and our bedtime routine I did not always have time to pull out the scissors in the evening.  I was not sure they did much cutting at school so I thought it was something we should focus on this summer.

The first thing I had them cut was a straight line.  I figured they would need help with this, but to my surprise they held the scissors the correct way and followed the line pretty well!  So I thought I would see if they could cut a square.  Here is what I observed…

I am so very proud of my kids! This was a total shock and now I have to work on planning so more challenging cutting activities for them!
