St patricks Day cutting practice

Students will:
  • color the page (optional)
  • cut from the bottom edge up to the circle
  • use the solid thick line for visual support
  • move from standard, evenly spaced straight lines through wavy lines, zig zag lines to wavy lines of varying length
  • curl each strand around a pencil to make the beards curly
Tip: tape the top corners down to the table with washi tape for extra stability!

By curling each strand around a pencil, students will get additional fine motor development and learn a great paper-craft technique to use in their own creative projects.

When students have finished the cutting activity they can also color, cut and glue the page into a bright backing paper for a fun classroom display of the curly beards.
