I have been colouring my bookish page for a while now and decided this summer I would finish it so that I can complete the project I I have in mind. Last night saw me Netflixing and colouring the last line of the illustrated shelf.
Last week Thursday was World Penguin Day. The Penguin is our school mascot so every year the entire school focuses on these wonderful creatures. In my classroom, my students worked on a number of activities that I had prepared for them – one of which was colouring in a beautiful penguin mandala that I had found.
Colouring is a great way for the children to practice holding and manoeuvring the pencil. It is also a calming activity which most children love to do. I am sure that by the end of today, all the boys and girls will be done with the task and I will put them up on the board for us all to enjoy.
The age group that I teach love colouring and always welcome an opportunity to use bright colours. For a recent activity on writing, I asked them to colour and describe a monster. Using the co-created poster of adjectives, they wrote down adjectives of their choice to describe their monsters. .
Not only do I enjoy seeing their colourful monsters, but I love that the children have managed to describe their monsters using the classroom resources in the language that they are learning.
