Color by number printable are relaxing to complete, Coloring is a relaxing activity. If you have hyper kids coming in from recess or lunch period, you can calm them down by giving them a color by number printable to work on. Once they’ve finished their work, they will be more ready to learn more demanding course material. Color by number printable encourage focus, While coloring by number, kids hone in on a task, and then focus on specific colors, numbers, or shapes while coloring in their coloring pages. This helps to build skills in focus and concentration. It also gives them a specific task to complete with a number of procedural steps to follow.
Furthermore, color by number coloring pages can be used to teach maths in terms of subtraction, addition, multiplication and division. How? Well, instead of putting a 5 in a shape and telling children in the legend that fives are to be colored purple, put a problem such as 3+2 or 8-3 for example, and tell them in the legend fives are to be colored purple. They have to stop, think and calculate, which is an awesome way of tricking them into practicing math while they think they are merely playing. Color by number coloring pages really come in handy when teaching little kids valuable lessons that can be applied to other things in life, such as following rules and finishing a task till the very end. In other words, color by number coloring pages have clearly defined rules, and that is the only way they should be completed; children know the rules, they should stick to them and in a way learn how to be patient, concentrated and how to obtain self-control. On the other hand, there is no way to see the “mysterious” final result unless you hang in there and finish the coloring of the image 100%. The final feeling of accomplishment and pride lingers later on in life, teaching the little ones that being focused and thorough gives satisfaction.
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.
