Laverne Berger December 19, 2019 Coloring
Coloring is something that I did often at home and it definitely helped improve my hand-eye coordination, though I can still be very clumsy. I don’t have much coloring books. Most received and a lot of pages are ‘scribbled’ by my 2 year old youngest. And I’m quite ‘picky’ about a good coloring book. Most books are on cheap paper and I only like the books with pretty illustrations.
Children see the benefit of finishing what they have started. This might sound so simple, but again, many children grow up not knowing that it’s important to see things through to the end. In my experience, most children love finishing color by number worksheets since they would like to see what the picture would look like if colored entirely. According to research, it takes an average of two months to create a habit. Imagine using color by number pages in your classroom just to develop the skill of seeing things through to the end the whole year. That’s one life skill that your students will be able to benefit from long after they have left your classroom.
This is a fun way to work on fine motor strength and bilateral coordination. Holding down that cotton t-shirt is a bilateral coordination workout!
Early colouring sheets of well known objects and scenes such as trees, rivers, houses and the sky give children their first exposure to the colour wheel. From this they can experiment with colour combinations and what happens with different colours in different situations.
I remember as a child the excitement around a new box of crayons and a coloring book! It was something I always enjoyed doing, and have many fond memories of coloring with my sister and my Mom on our living room floor! With technology and digital coloring it seems that crayons and paper coloring are becoming a thing of the past – but research continues to support the benefits of pencil (or crayon!) to paper, as well as arts and crafts!
