My son is 8 yrs. old and is a normal boy in every way, except like many children, was slower to develop some of his fine motor skills. He has loved using all of these first steps workbooks, along with the regular Kumon workbooks. He has gained much in his ability to cut carefully using the simple exercises in this book. Please be sure to give your child a GOOD pair of scissors with this book! Cheap and junky scissors will lead to the projects looking chewed, not cut. Do your child a favor and let his projects look beautiful by giving him a good pair of scissors. Fiskars for children, with blunt or pointed tips are very good. We use the Crayola child's scissors, with all metal blades (not plastic) and these cut extremely well too.
Now armed with a good pair of scissors, what will your child be cutting? Well, there are 39 small pages for him to cut, beginning with simple things like cut the whiskers on the cat, the dog, and the tiger. Project #4 is cutting the square paper in half on the thick grey line, and arranging the 2 pieces to make a picture of a car. #6 has you do this, but cutting the square on a diagonal, and arranging the 2 pieces to make a boat.#7 has the child make 3 cuts across the square, and tape the 3 cut pieces in order to make a rocket. Project #8 is the same, with 3 cuts making 4 pieces to tape together...it is a tug of war rope with animals!Read more ›
The book begins with very simple activities and slowly becomes more difficult. The illustrations are fun and colorful. There are instructions for parents that focus on positive reinforcement and ideas to keep your child interested when challenged. Within two weeks my child was cutting curves, sharp angles, difficult shapes and spirals. I was amazed! There is a certificate of achievement for the child when the book has been finished.
This is a great book to help your child learn to cut paper, and to build self confidence.
So far he has loved the "Let's Sticker and Paste" book as well. The "Let's Color" is not as interesting to him, and is easily replaced by a coloring book.
So far this cutting book has been the favorite, although all the Kumon ones I ordered are 5 stars too. My daughter is addicted to this book and is always asking to work on her cutting book. Definitely follow the recommendations in the book such as to only do a couple pages at a time and leave your child wanting to do more. If you rush through the pages, you just waste the book and it is not as enriching. Take your time with each page; discuss and explain it. AND we also get some use and play value from the pages after the cutting is completed! Many of them have been cute little crafty things/animals that encourage imaginative play.
They have done a superb job of stepping up the skill level every 2-4 pages. I'm thrilled as we turn each page and see what is next. It's incredible quality throughout with the full color, slick pages and adorable drawings. And with almost all the pages we've done so far there is some additional skill-building activity after cutting - such as to match up the pieces to create a scene, fold the edges, tape pieces together.
The parent is supposed to cut each page from the book, but I've been letting my daughter do that for extra practice. I help her hold the page and book while she cuts it across.
I'm thrilled with how she has been developing her cutting skills and how much enthusiasm she has for it.Read more ›
