Ten Fingers Are Overrated--Cutting with Scissors...On the Lines

Last week, the occupational therapist at Zeke's school caught me in the school office, excited to tell me that she just saw Zeke cut with regular scissors.  He's been doing that for quite awhile now, like maybe a month after he got his purple spring loaded scissors.  I think having those purple ones have him the ability to see how scissors worked and then figure it out from there.  That said, he is a crazy good scissor user.  He cuts on the lines better than what some kindergarteners and first graders can.  (I helped him with one side of this elephant, the part where the trunk connects to the face.  He did the other side by himself.)
