Scissors Safety is a key skill that often times needs to be learned when new learners come to school. A social story is a great read to have on hand when training a whole class or even individual children without this awareness and concern for safety. This was created for a group of young kindergarten students who had neither of these.
The major skills covered by this booklet are:
*Being safe due to the sharpness of the blades
*Not handing scissors directly to someone else
*Being careful to not point scissors at others
*Sitting in your seat while cutting
*Transporting them with closed blades in your fist
To prepare your booklet, download and print. You may choose to laminate it. Either use a hole punch and binder rings or you may opt to bind it using a binding machine. Once in book form, it can be read repeatedly to your students until they have the hang of it. I often times will keep it in the classroom library, so students can read it back to themselves or others, again and again.
