Resource Description

Why is cutting with scissors important?

Scissor skills are an essential part of pencil grasp development. Cutting is an easy, fun way to practice the hand muscles necessary for writing. We use the same muscles and fingers (thumb, index, and middle fingers) for both cutting and writing activities. It is an essential development skill for school readiness and supports writing and pencil grasp development.

The WriteAbility cutting skills activity resource was created by an occupational therapist and includes guidelines for the use and development of cutting skills.

A variety of acting activities that can be used in the classroom by teachers, at home by parents or therapists as part of treatment. Activities are graded, easy to use, and lots of fun.

Activities are not language dependent. (Instructions for use are visual)
