This packet is arranged into steps that increase in difficulty as you go through them. I have also included an optional assessment.
Step 1: Snipping
Cut the paper into strips on the solid lines and have the students practice their snipping skills. There are two different versions of Step 1. The first has guides on where to hold the paper for both left and right handers. The second does not. It is up to you to choose which is best for your students!
Step 2: Short Lines
This step has longer lines but is arranged like Step 1.
Step 3: Long Lines
Step 4: Simple Curves
Step 5: 1 Direction Change
Step 6: Zig Zags
Step 7: Challenge Lines
Step 8: Shapes
Step 9: Complex Shapes
Step 10: Pictures
The assessment is optional but the same for every unit so you can track progress through the year. I have students do the assessment, then glue it onto a sheet of construction paper. I also glue the circle and square on the construction paper as well, under the holes that they made by cutting them out!
