MeganW Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 It has become obvious that despite an unbelievable amount of practice, my kids are never going to become good at coloring without some more direct instruction. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to teach something that seems so intuitive, though. Apparently everyone else thinks it's intuitive as well, b/c there is very little on the internet about how to teach coloring. If you had to teach coloring to someone who had the basic fine motor skills, how would you break it down? Tricky parts? Covering large areas neatly? PS - yes, I know not everyone agrees that coloring is important, but I do and I'd really like them to get the hang of it, so please don't bother responding if you are just going to say it isn't important. Plus, the kids are annoyed that they spend so long getting their drawings just the way they want them, then the coloring screws it up.
