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.

These are all things we do when we write. Being able to control a crayon and get it to do what you want directly corresponds to being able to write with a pen or pencil.

Excellent post! Very impressive too. I bought coloring books for my little one as he likes doing all this stuff. He is enrolled at one of top Phoenix pre-k. Must admit that all teachers there are very good and corporate.
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)
