Scissor Practice Made Simple!
So here is a simple activity we are doing with our ELL's tomorrow to allow them to have more practice with scissors. We have a rigorous curriculum to teach and need to get as much accomplished as the kids can handle.
Our children need to work with scissors and just cut straight lines under supervision. We want our students to be able to identify these school supplies and use the linguistic pattern you see here. This will help to build their fluency. For the beginner, labeling the object is a starting place. The other pattern that goes with this is "_______ are in my my backpack." Pick and choose what will be useful for your students.I like running the backpack on colored paper and having the kids just color the school supplies. It looks cute to run them on a variety of colors and to make this an easy board for the beginning of the year. We have 31 kids and this really makes it challenging to come up with easy projects they can do with some independence. I will try to post this later if you want it! Have a great day of teaching.
Thanks for your patience today. I post early in the morning and now I can give you that freebie just because you are my friends. Grab it and use it with your little ones tomorrow. These graphics are done by my friend Makda and naturally they are fabulous.You can leave her a comment right here if you LOVE them cause I love her!
