Coloring requires coordination because you have to watch where you want to put the color. The less coordinated the motions of the colored are the more likely they are to scribble and put color outside of the lines.
I’m a first grade teacher. For creativity, I agree that encouraging kids to create their own art is superior. I guess I don’t see coloring pages as competing with the goal of creativity, though. Most kids love to color – there’s something calming about it. In my classroom, it’s an activity kids can choose at certain times. Many of my kids choose to color when I’m reading aloud a chapter book. It’s a mindless activity that doesn’t compete with listening, and for some kids, having something to do with their hands enhances their ability to listen.
In addition to classic worksheet and lesson plan methods, the Learning Library’s entertaining online games, hands-on activities, and interesting science projects add a layer of engagement to education that helps growing brains absorb and retain new information.
As you probably know, coloring is useful in general as it is a rhythmic activity that calms the brain of all ages and of all abilities. As for anti-stress coloring books, they are used as an alternative to meditation, as a means of relaxation, and as a calming tool. It can help a child focus on the act of coloring intricate pictures for hours on end instead of focusing on troubling thoughts. They can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.
Coloring requires children to take a crayon and bring it to the paper in specific locations. This requires hand-eye coordination. You can see it develop as kids get older.
I love coloring, even now that am Kids . Back then, coloring is part of our discipline exercise – coloring and not crossing each lines is a challenge, but I made it!
