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.
Activity books often have drawing prompts in addition to other activities that get kids thinking and doing (many of these also have coloring activities, but I don’t stress about it)
Below are the best benefits of coloring page which allow kids to get the best knowledge and also allow them to enjoy learning in the best ways. So spend some time this week with your child coloring, creating and sharing the experience – you will both benefit from this worthwhile activity!
Notice the incomplete sentences at the bottom of the page? Your child can write his/her name on the blank to make it more personalized. So it’s like hitting two birds with one stone! Your child gets to color and practice writing his/her name, all in one page.
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.
