Colouring in te reo Maori whakatauki pages, is just one more way of normalising te reo Maori in your classroom or home.
After a discussion of the meaning there’s nothing better than to settle and colour!
Colouring is for everyone and the following are some of the key benefits of colouring pages in child development:
1. Improves Motor Skills
2. Stimulates Creativity
3.Promotes colour Awareness
4. Improves Focus and Hand to Eye Coordination
5. Improves Confidence and Self Esteem (completing projects)
6. Self-Expression many of us are visual in nature. Colouring is a vehicle for self-expression as we make colour decisions and flesh out the boundaries of a colouring page.
7. Stress Relief Colouring is also calming and therapeutic for tamariki (and adults-I LOVE it too!)
For many it is a great time to reflect
