Getting through my first week at my new school, 1st grade classroom. I've given opportunity for a few coloring assignments. While the majority of the class seems to enjoy it, I still have a handful who despise the coloring. And yes, the rest of their print and other visible fine motor skills aren't that great. My argument for coloring is it helps with fine motor skills as well as contributes to the concept of a good professional presentation. Or am I just glorifying coloring unnecessarily? It became a bit of a thought game for me.
