Do you use blunt or pointed scissors in Kinder?
Mar 25, 2009
we have blunt scissors- can i ask why you are asking?
I've used both, and usually use whatever I inherit in the classroom. But the blunt works just as well if it's a good brand. Fiskars for kids are great! (I'm also sometimes careful which kinds I give to which kids!)
I have the one or two students who can't use pointed because I don't trust them! Otherwise, whatever kind I find works!
Sure Firstgurl85, I am asking because I may move down to Kinder next year and wondered if my pointed scissors would be ok or if I needed to spend money on blunt.
I use blunt.
I only use the Fiskars kids' scissors. Most of the ones that get sent in by parents are blunt, but I do have a few of the pointed ones. Never had any issues either way. But even the pointed ones don't have a sharp point on the end.
Hmmm, I don't even know! I think they use blunt. I never thought about it....
I had to look, some are blunt, some are pointed, all are Fiskars.
Mine are a mix as well, but all Fiskars - they are the best. None are the truly pointed tip kind they are the "for kids" pointed tip/blunt tip.
Fiskars is the best, hands down. Scissors are a school supply that parents send in at the first of the year and on our supply list we specifically ask for Fiskars. They cut the best and are very durable.
Blunt tipped only becaue we have a mixture of 3-6 yr olds in our classroom.
I also have a combination of both blunt and pointed scissors. They are all fiskar scissors and the kids do just fine regardless of what kind I give them.
I use blunt. Even after talking about scissor safety over and over, I still get "sword fights." Better safe than sorry!

One sword fight would make a child lose scissor privileges in my classroom for a LONG time.
You'll love this then: I sent took away privileges, moved their light to red, and sent a note home. The response? The parents wrote "funny" with a smiley face.
Haha then good question! I don't think it matters much as long as you stress the importance of being safe! :thumb:
I used blunt last year....I as well had the sword fights and all kinds of other problems. Many students lost scissor privileges for a long time...Many were not allowed to keep their scissors in their boxes in their desks because of what they did with them...Others even had to go as far as to only be allowed to use scissors when they were sitting next to me. Much better safe!

Mixture of both and all Fiskars. No problems with either style.
