Raison Lejeune December 5, 2019 Christmas
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.
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.
Focus – Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one’s life.
We have them on hand (an enormous stockpile actually), but generally my kids prefer to draw their own pictures. My 7 year old does love the activity kind of colouring books that include puzzles and mazes etc though.
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.
How true and special, you are , lands sake everything these days is anti this and that, give kids both let them choose. coloring books or pages. today its no candy no sugar no fun our clans and generations everyone had sweets desserts etc played outside until dragged in after dark and hide and seek. No cell phones video games or computers. and every one turn out great, highly intellectual intelligent, well adjusted healthy, never any cavities , but then again we were raised on gardens, large and small, dairies, and all kinds of meat products all natural products, never had all these processed foods, vitamins, didn’t get in trouble as today, too busy with schools, chores, playing and learning truth and respect. to days world is sickness, sad, and stress, how unfortunate.
