Cutting Practice With The Farm Animals Printable:
- Farm Animals Cutting Practice Printable
What We Did:
First, I printed out the Farm Animals Cutting Practice Printable
Next, we colored the animal pictures while talking about their names.
We talked about how a baby cow is called a calf, a baby dog is a puppy, a baby pig is a piglet, and so on.
After we colored, I made each set into strips by cutting along the solid lines. This is optional, but I wanted to make it easier for my son to hold the paper as he cut along the dotted lines.
Next, my son carefully cut along the dotted lines to “lead” the baby animals to their moms.
There are straight lines and zig-zags, as well as curvy lines.
He continued until all of the dotted lines were cut.
