PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Interactive Coloring Sheets plus writing prompts - all major holidays included! My original and unique interactive "pop art" coloring sheets are a teacher and student favorite! This popular collection features coloring sheets and writing prompts for back to school, Johnny Appleseed, Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Earth Day, Cinco de Mayo, Spring, Summer, End of the Year and more. There are over 90 interactive coloring sheets in this set as well as writing for all sets. Each set also includes one pattern filled variations or differentiation.

This product is designed for grades 3 and above... all the way to adults!

For younger (Prek-1) students you might like my pattern filled coloring sheets.

These coloring sheets are interactive because it is the student who decides on all of the designs and colors by drawing in patterns to make the composition. No two sheets will ever be the same and the more of these the students do, the better they get at making decisions and solving design problems. No more coloring sheets that look exactly the same!

See my individual sets of interactive coloring pages.

Not only are these coloring sheets a ton of fun, but they make great think-and-solve problems.

As one of my Instagram followers said:

“I found that my 5th/6th graders come to me and because of the focus on testing, never played with color or design or patterns. Your products give them that opportunity and I’ve seen so much improvement in their attention to detail as well as noticing patterns, lines, etc. It’s so much more than “just coloring.” ~E.D.

These interactive coloring sheets are perfect for any occasion, but also shine during testing season! They are a great way to wake up the brain prior to a big test, or a way to give your students some creativity at the end of a long testing session.

As an art teacher, artist and lover of all things “artsy,” I am a big proponent of “art for art’s sake.” My interactive coloring sheets are designed such that they can be used any time in your classroom for the sake of making art.

However, I am a teacher so I understand how hard-pressed classroom teachers are for time. You might not feel like you can give up precious lesson time to let the kids “color.” In that case, I suggest that you can use these interactive sheets as writing prompts. I have included writing prompts for all the holidays and seasons included in this set.

But no matter how you decide to use them in the classroom, I know that your students will be engaged and the completed "Pop Art" image is always fun and colorful and gets a "WOW!" out of everyone (students, teachers, and parents, alike!)

I hope you have fun with these, I know my students and I do!
