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.
Do not fret if your kids are not coloring properly or if he is coloring outside the lines. Praise them for his effort. If you see your kids making mistakes while coloring, help them with it instead of chiding. Teach him how to fill a space and do up and down stroke. You can also teach him to use complementary colors to make the picture appear more vibrant. Coloring is also an excellent medium of expression. Children often express their personality through drawing and coloring.
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.
