Kids need to have the hand strength to manipulate handwriting tools on a paper. When the strength is developed it will help to eliminate the potential of grasping handwriting tools incorrectly.
In early childhood, children are still developing the fine motor coordination skills that will eventually support their daily activities. Typing, writing, cooking, household chores, turning pages of a book, using tools, doing their hair pretty much everything requires motor skills. When your child colors, he or she is developing their fine motor coordination. Other coloring-related activities that help develop fine motor coordination include dot-to-dot pictures, tracing, coloring inside the lines of coloring pages, playing and copying a picture onto a blank sheet of paper.
So your child came home from school with yet another picture she drew of you and her holding hands. While the scribbles are cute, have you ever found yourself wondering if they’re really an important part of school? Are they actually supporting the academic atmosphere? The answer is YES, coloring is important in early childhood education for a lot of reasons!
