6) Building motor skills – any time a child does something like color, play with blocks, paint, etc, they think they are just having fun, when in fact they are developing motor skills at a very basic, simple level that they will expand on later in life. Coloring with crayons or markers, learning to print, pencil grasp, playing with Play Doh, beading, lacing, crumpling paper, tearing paper, using stamps, and wiggling fingers all are activities that help to strengthen and develop hand muscles. These skills are very important to help develop activities later on, such as typing, lifting objects, and other activities that they will encounter as they grow older. These activities require arm muscles and hands to work together to be able to manipulate objects to perform the task(s) at hand.
Hand-eye coordination and pencil grip add up to writing skills. Coloring helps kids get ready to write. When you color you have to control the speed of the crayon, the pressure you put on it, and the direction you steer it.
As a preschool teacher, I recommend that you just let your child color the way he/she likes it. As mush as possible, refrain from instructing what colors to use. Or worse, criticize them.
And that is mindfulness! Coloring is a deliberate anti stress therapy that helps your body and mind appreciate the little things in life and be present. It helps you learn how to better react to situations and achieve a state of calm that clears your mind of stress and discontent.
Coloring seems like a childish pastime, but it is so much more. It really is an important activity for children of all ages to do. From working on physical motor skills to helping with emotional expression, it is crazy how many things this simple activity does.
Teachers, tutors and parents can confidently teach new topics with thought-out lesson plans and worksheets. Printable workbooks allow for a closer inspection of grammar, math, spelling and other topics. These are just a few of the many useful tools the Learning Library provides to ensure second-graders continue to build upon nuts and bolts.
