Veronique Joubert May 10, 2020 Coloring Pages For Kids
When you hear about a coloring book, you might start thinking of mermaids, fairies and animals which more than likely were a daily appearance in your childhood life. However, in contrast to your favorite juvenile book, an anatomy coloring book has a different and distinct format. Naturally, black and white anatomical diagrams waiting to be colored still dominate. However, rather than being randomly arranged, they are organized very precisely and logically.
Coloring also creates visual relationships. In other words, it creates motorways between the mental cities found inside your mind. A lot of study strategies encourage students to create relationships when learning new information because it is better for long-term retention compared re-reading and repetition. A coloring book automatically does this for you by presenting a structure and its associated term on a single page and instructs you to color both of them using the same color.
More specifically, they do this by increasing the brain’s level of attention, or stated differently, colors attract attention. In turn, the more attention is focused on a stimuli, the higher is the chance to be transferred to memory. Also, colors enhance memory through mental arousal, which was shown to be essential in keeping information in the memory system.
Coloring requires hand-eye coordination, as children need to coordinate their movements as they draw, make thick or thin strokes, and color in large or small spaces. Controlled movements are required for handwriting and proper letter formation. The key to helping your child prepare for handwriting is TO NOT PRACTICE HANDWRITING! Tasks like coloring are a perfect preparation for children’s muscles and motor skills.
It was so simple and lots of fun. After getting our canvas, paint, rollers, and a foam brush, we were ready to go! All you do is pick your leaf, and you can put paint right on the leaf, or dip your roller into some dabs of paint on a paper plate. Roll the paint all over the leaf and then press the leaf face down on your canvas.
When children color, they build up their fine motor skills, which in turn will lead to building up their endurance in completing writing tasks. Children can build up the small muscles in their hand when they color in small spaces, or make small movements, like circles. This lends itself to leading up to making strokes for letter formation and writing, and ultimately being able to sustain in a writing task.
