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.
Coloring requires coordination because you have to watch where you want to put the color. The less coordinated the motions of the colored are the more likely they are to scribble and put color outside of the lines.
Coloring has intellectual benefits as well. It utilizes areas of the brain that enhance focus and concentration. It also helps with problem solving and organizational skills. This can help us replace negative thoughts with positive and pleasant ones. It promotes creativity and flexible thinking. So, when I learned all those benefits about anti-stress coloring books, I immediately decided that we must try them with the children. They enjoyed them immensely as everyone tried to be creative and make their drawing different from the others.”
This gets kids practicing their skills with mathematics – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, working with shapes – while completing a fun art project in the classroom. It’s a best of both worlds scenario.
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.
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.
