One of the benefits of coloring pages teaching children to identify different colors. While every child should know the basic red, green, blue, pink, yellow, the common colors, there is good reason to teach them the names of more obscure hues. Recent research shows that vocabulary helps people tell colors apart. Comparing different linguistic groups scientists have shown that if a language does not have a name for a color then the speaker has a more difficult time differentiating similar shades of color. If a child is never taught to be able to recognize the difference between brilliant white and eggshell (or rose and pink, fuchsia and red, etc.) then as adult they may never be able to tell the two apart. So discussing and pointing out the subtle differences among the big box of crayons is really an important cognitive opportunity.
The best aspect of coloring sheets is that they are made available to the kids mostly free of cost and with ease too. All you are required to get these printable free coloring pages is to click on some website and print the copies to distribute them to kids at home or at school for coloring. Since there are a huge variety of coloring pictures available, you do not have to give the same picture to the kids. So each kid has a different picture to color. Thus, it can be concluded that coloring books meet the kids’ need of expressing themselves creatively and no one has to spend money on getting the pictures for coloring.
Knowing The Names Of Colors. There is another important aspect of teaching colors that all parents should be aware of. A recent study in Scientific American Magazine shows that the placement of descriptive adjective describing the color makes a big difference in helping kids understanding. For example in the English language we would say the ”red crayon” and it turns out this is much harder for children’s brains to grasp then the linguistic structure used in many other languages like Spanish, which would be said as the ”crayon is red.” When teaching colors or any other important property to young children, always first identify the object, then identify the property. While every day English is not spoken in this manner, and it is faster to speak or write, young brains cannot process information in this manner effectively.
