Includes 2 separate worksheets that work on fine motor and cutting skills. Students love cutting all the way to the cookie and avoiding the monsters!
Page 1: Students must cut through lines of 3/4 of an inch (less difficult).
Page 2: Students must cut through lines of 1/4 of an inch (more difficult).
If they master page 1 without going outside the lines, move on to page 2!
Encourage a thumbs-up grasp, cue them to take their time and stay inside lines while cutting. If they go outside the lines they will touch the monsters! When that happens, have extra copies printed and encourage them to try again. If they make it to the end of the line, the cookie is their reward!
This activity addresses:
- Fine motor skills
- visual motor skills
- visual perceptual skills
- separation of sides of the hand (important for grasp and writing skills)
