Holding and sharpening pencils as well as recognizing and choosing colours from a pot helps with hand eye coordination.Requiring children to colour on a colouring sheet requires them to colour in a defined area this forces them to carefully control the pencil or crayons.
A children’s occupational therapist in Solon, Ohio explains, “Repetitive motions, like coloring, can soothe anxiety and elicit a relaxation response. The reaction allows a lower heart rate, blood pressure and less muscle tension. Repeating fine motor movements can allow the brain to focus on returning to that movement rather than to anxious thoughts.”
A refreshing component of teaching kindergartners is that most subjects are brand new to them. The enjoyable library resources will ensure that their young curiosity continues to blossom.
