I use this sheet in the first week of school to teach my students how to correctly use their scissors. I model using a Guided Discovery approach from Responsive Classroom. I demonstrate holding scissors correctly and using a cut and slide method. We also discuss any other rules and routines for using this material at this time. Teaching students how to correctly use scissors, rather than assuming they were all taught correctly before coming to your classroom, ensures that your class will know your full expectations for using scissors in K!
