The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for kids and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is very important to give kids a chance to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time happens, and the child has to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards a successful academic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
