Break out the scissors! Practice those all-important fine motor skills with free Christmas line cutting worksheets, perfect for preschool and Kindergarten.
What are Cutting Worksheets?
Just as you learn to write smoothly by tracing shapes and letters, you learn to use scissors correctly with line-cutting worksheets. The lines provide guidance so students can practice cutting with precision.
Why Use Christmas Line Cutting Worksheets?
Learning to use scissors is a difficult task. It requires independent motion of the fingers, hand-eye coordination, two-handed coordination (one to guide the paper and the other to cut), strong hand muscles, and focus. Whew! Who knew all that was required to use a pair of scissors?
While this is an important task for young learners to master, it need not be boring. Christmas line cutting worksheets turn cutting practice into play. Help the nutcrackers get to their presents, march the penguins to the candy canes, and place the gifts under the tree. All of this cutting practice culminates in cutting out ornaments to hang on a tree.
