Coloring in the classroom
Coloring can sometimes be labeled as unimportant work in the classroom. People feel like it doesn’t involve any learning.
While it might not be an academic skill, it can be used to help children develop fine motor skills. This is something so many students are not getting to practice due to the use of technology at home and skill.
It’s so important we give our children an opportunity to build those muscles in their hands.
Another benefit is that it can be a stress reliever for some children.
Obviously, you can’t provide students with a coloring page and call it science. You can give your students an opportunity to color as they enter the classroom and get ready for the day. It can be a calming activity and it’s a great time to allow your class to talk with each other.
