By On Mar 01, 2018 Kids Coloring
Tracing activities develop a child control of the small muscles of the hands (fine motor skills) improving hand/eye coordination. Learning shapes and colors allows children to group or classify items -- children develop their ability to make logical connections -- a precursor to both math and language arts.
This month our family goal has been to cut back on worry, but it’s not easy. As new school groups form and back-to-school sign ups start piling up, so do the expectations and concerns. Are we teaching our kids by modeling that more stress equals success? How do we slow down and get off the merry-go-round? No sooner did I ask this than a package arrived from Colorit, the makers of adult coloring books. Excited to start creating, I made a coffee date with a friend who has been there through play dates and preschool day. Finally, our long-awaited moment had come. We get to actually sit and just catch up.
If an aspect of a project is frustrating to the child, provide assistance - try to keep things fun. Sing songs, read stories or watch shows with a similar theme as the worksheet you choose to supplement the project - again focusing on extra activities that the child enjoys to help keep them motivated.
