Having your students scissor and glue a calendar helps them practice letter and number recognition and matching, spelling and number ordering
, while honing fine motor skills. This product includes upper case and proper case letters that spell the months of the year, numbers from 1 to 31, labels for the days of the week, and a calendar template on which to glue everything after scissoring. Scissoring is an important skill! In order to use scissors correctly, children need sufficient finger and hand strength and stability, sufficient development of the hand arches, hand–eye coordination, bilateral integration skills (using both hands together) and the ability to cross the midline. All of these same skills also contribute to the development of handwriting so they are of particular importance during Preschool and Kindergarten.
And by scissoring and gluing letters and numbers in order, proper spelling and number sense
is reinforced, all the while honing fine motor skills. Brilliant! Remember, keep your thumb up while scissoring!
