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.
I’m so happy to hear that coloring is part of your child’s routine. There is definitely a lot of benefit that can be reaped from this simple activity.
I created some fun color by number pages for Ben. They help work number sense and have all the benefits coloring gives. Ben is going into Pre-K this fall and is working hard on his writing skills. Coloring is a super fun way to do that!
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.
