Recent studies have shown that a child’s math skills upon entering kindergarten can be a strong predictor of her future academic performance in both math and reading throughout the elementary grades. Math learning promotes working memory, improves attention, and increases other basic cognitive skills. But don’t head to the store to buy flash cards and worksheets, which can likely squelch your child’s natural interest in the subject. Instead, engage her in these playful activities to help her develop a strong foundation in understanding math. Counting is important because it helps children learn number sequence, but even before counting, children need to develop a basic understanding of numbers. Three important number concepts are one-to-one correspondence (each object is counted only once); cardinality (the last object counted is the total number of objects); and in variance (the number of objects doesn’t change if they are configured differently–for instance, spread out or placed in a circle). Here are some ways to help your child develop these basic number concepts.

This also has a lot to do with the exposure to boundaries, that is, coloring within the lines. When kids immerse themselves in the process of coloring, they concentrate on making the pictures inside the coloring pages come to life, which results in them greatly improving those skills. Improved focus and concentration skills help kids not only in learning how to write, but also in a number of other activities that they will indulge later in life. Being able to focus better will also help them perform better at school, so it is very important for each and every child to acquire them when they are younger.

The act of coloring can ignite imagination and inspire kids to come up with an infinite number of ideas to express their thoughts. It provides them with an opportunity to express their creative side. Kids can express their entire personalities through coloring and, what’s more, they can learn how to draw. The pictures within the coloring pages can inspire them and stimulate their creativity. They can wake up their artistic side, which can open a whole new world for them. Simply by looking at the colored drawings that they helped bring to life, kids create a whole other world inside their minds, which they will try and put on paper as well.

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.

All of the aforementioned benefits certainly help kids prepare for school and different kinds of classroom activities. However, there are certain things that they can learn with the help of coloring pages that can help them develop their reading and math skills. The simple act of coloring can help a child learn about lines, shapes, forms, perspective, boundaries and patterns. By learning to recognize all of those things, especially different patterns, kids actually develop pre-reading and pre-math skills, which will undoubtedly help them later in school.

Color by number worksheets are fantastic in helping children understand that symbols have meaning. Not only do children get better at color recognition when using color by number pages; they also learn that numbers can be used to represent other things and aren’t only just for counting. Later on, children will be able to grasp that different objects in their surroundings can actually be used as a symbol for other things and have other meanings. It’s just undeniable that symbolic understanding is important to function well in the society we live in.

When they learn how to hold crayons and choose between different colors to find the best one to use, kids develop strong hand-eye coordination. Even the act of holding a smartened steady when using coloring games helps kids develop basic coordination skills. Since coloring pages have all kinds of shapes and diagrams, kids are required to color within specified areas, which also helps them improve their hand-eye coordination.

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.
