K-2 Arts Enrichment/Remote Learning 1: Cutting Skills

We need to keep our cutting and gluing skills sharp! Remember our "Mr. Alligator" technique when cutting....

2. We need to make sure he takes little "bites" at a time. He can't bite down all the way. He lost his front teeth from eating too much candy! He can only use his back teeth (do not cut near the tip of the scissors, move paper to the inside part of the scissors and when cutting don't close scissors all the way.)
These are activities to help us with these skills:
