I found a printout that had been left behind on the network printer at school and it led me to this wonderful site to help children with beginning of the year kindergarten skills.
Once the children mastered cutting on lines, I had them make a "skinny book" to help them practice following directions, cutting, sight words, and color words--phew!
You can download a copy here. To make the book, the children color the pictures, cut on the dotted lines and staple.
The children really seemed to enjoy making a book to take home.
