Coloring is the perfect time to practice naming the colors. I know, it is so obvious, but sometimes we miss the most obvious thing. You don’t have to go crazy with a formal lesson, but name the colors as you use them.
Picking up the coloring utensil and putting it down to paper requires children to learn hand-eye coordination. If they put the crayon down here, then this is where the color appears.
Coloring books and sheets are important educational tools to prepare the preschoolers for school. It is also one of the most favorite pastime activities of the kids. It sparks their imagination and gives them an opportunity to express themselves. Give your kids drawing sheets of their favorite cartoons, animals or film stars; they will spend hours coloring it.
I have a son that hates to color and I hope he outgrows it and soon, because I’d love to spend the time ’creating’ in a relaxing environment like coloring. Someday. This year for Christmas we surprised our three girls with a giant dollhouse for their 18 inch dolls.
8) Boundaries – Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with reprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage scratch paper coloring as often as possible, so that children are free to express themselves, for many preschoolers this is their only exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the reprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
Kindergarten is also a time where many kids are introduced to their peer group. The Learning Library offers important tools to instill healthy social skills such as how to be a friend or what it means to be a good citizen.
