Top 3 Reasons to Use Coloring Activities in the Classroom:
1- Coloring activities minimize off-task student behavior (making it more likely for students to complete the assignment in the allotted time frame) because they want to see what the end result will look like.
2- Coloring activities make self-checking simple for students: "I got blue for #5...how'd you get red?"
3- Coloring activities provide the teacher with a way to quickly assess student understanding while floating around the room: "Marie's coloring sheet looks off...I better go over to her desk and check on how she's doing."
Worried about kids just coloring?...I was too. I require my students to have work shown for each problem as I would with any assignment: "Turning in a beautiful piece of art without the math to back it up doesn't count as doing your assignment, kiddos!"
