Children who are learning to use scissors will face certain challenges. One of these challenges is managing changes in direction.
Being proactive and teaching strategies is always better than having to correct an inefficient technique. Doing so helps the child continue to experience success throughout the learning process and maintains his/her interest in cutting activities.
The goal is to teach the child to anticipate changes in direction and turn the piece of paper instead of reorienting his/her scissors. Here is a fun suggestion that will help you teach children to manage changes in direction when using scissors.
