My just-turned-5-year-old adores any type of cut and paste activity!
She loves cutting practice pages, scissor skills practice, and any other activity that requires the use of scissors and a glue stick.
I think it’s because she’s a crafty soul at heart!
My 5 year old is taking a bit longer to learn her letters and numbers, so she still has some trouble with actually writing them.
I don’t push her – my 6 years of homeschool experience reminds me that she will learn how to write those letters with correct formation when her fine motor skills catch up.
In the meantime, she’s a cutting and gluing kind of girl!

Winter Label the Picture
Because my littlest girl can’t get enough of labeling pictures, I wanted to make a set of winter-themed activities for her.
She cuts out each of the pictures, and I sound out the word for her.
Then she glues each picture in the correct place on the page.
Is this activity too advanced for her since she doesn’t read yet?
Not at all! I’m taking the time to sit with her and sound out each word, and she glues the picture in place.
My modeling how the word is sounded out is incredibly valuable to her. She’ll remember the dozens of times we have sounded out a word, and she’ll eventually start to sound out words in the same method.
This is, of course, in conjunction with a host of other Getting Ready to Read-type activities we do each day!
Note that this set is for personal or classroom use.
