Yesterday we added a Happy Flower coloring page to our Premium Coloring Club featuring 10 beautiful big joyful faces!
I want to share with you a few ways to incorporate this page into some deeper lessons and activities.
Coloring is engaging for many students and will help them develop skills ready for penmanship and writing. It is also a relaxing activity that can assist in mindfulness.
Finger Play Counting Rhyme
I wrote a little finger play to go along with the page. As your class is sitting in front of you encourage them to join in. To name just a few, finger plays are wonderful for
building class community
developing confidence in little learners
building vocabulary and language skills
fine motor dexterity
transitioning between activities
building verbal and auditory-memory skills
Ask your students to pop their fingers up and pretend they are flowers waving in the breeze! As the rhyme progresses they put a finger down to keep track of the backward count. You may like to pause and talk about how removing one has resulted in a new number.
