Have you ever tried using color by number worksheets in the classroom? If you have, then I bet you’ll agree that these pages provide a lot of fun for children of all ages the whole year ’round. Aside from providing hours of enjoyment for your kiddos, here are three other benefits of using color by number worksheets: Children are trained to follow instructions. Let’s face it: Even adults have a hard time following instructions. I think this only means that training children early to follow directions, even for something as simple as color by number worksheets, surely has its benefits. Aside from learning the importance of following instructions to come up with a correctly colored picture, children are trained to function better at home and in school, as well as taught to accomplish other tasks faster and more effectively.
Geometry and Spatial Understanding, Children can develop a basic understanding of geometry and spatial relations by playing with blocks and other building toys. Encourage geometry-related skills with these ideas. Identify shapes in your home. Play a simple game of finding basic shapes around the home, such as rectangles in light switches, squares in windowpanes, circles in clocks, and so forth. Ask your child to explain how she differentiates each shape by their defining features (for instance, a triangle has three connected sides) and non-defining features (such as the position or size of the triangle). Talk about picture placement in a book. When reading a storybook, use spatial language to talk about the placement of pictures. Ask related questions such as ”Where is the moon? Is it above the tree? Is it under the tree?” Or reference sizes by asking, ”Is the hippopotamus bigger than the monkey? Which animal is bigger? Which animal is smaller?”. Make a map of your home. Practice more spatial language by helping your child make a map of his bedroom or the backyard. As he places and spaces out furniture, windows, and closets, or gardens, trees, and bushes, ask him questions about where they’re located and how close together they are.
This one goes hand in hand with the improvement of motor skills. By developing hand strength and great attention to detail, not to mention the development of dexterity with writing/coloring tools, kids may find it easier to learn how to write. Developing motor skills helps kids practice better handwriting, especially because coloring pages have a countless number of lines within which kids are supposed to color. By learning about those boundaries, that is, to color inside the lines, kids later learn to write more easily and it comes more naturally to them.
