Working on cutting long-term...
I have a kid who is working on cutting. He tends to not cut carefully. Each session he has to cut out several shapes very carefully (you can still see a few mistakes though, cough) and then glue them onto this one sheet of paper we keep. We have it going in "Mario style" (hence some of those question marks from the game) and then he gets to add a Mario sticker. He really likes this. I probably should have put dates on the shapes in tiny pencil too. Hindsight is 20/20 right!
But for those of you working on cutting...consider keeping a single sheet of construction paper in their folder that you just keep adding to, a few shapes at a time, to make a cool board game or Mario theme or whatever makes them happy, with stickers, etc. :) That weird shape on top is a boomerang, by the way...lol.
If I were to do this again, and I plan to...I'd probably force him to go in a chronological order rather than haphazard. IE left to right so you can see the progression in time. Live and learn.
