3 more Halloween coloring pages.

It’s currently the end of August and my daughters are ready for Halloween. We’ve already started watching Halloween movies and coloring our Halloween coloring pages. I often find that coloring is a good time to throw in reading. My oldest daughter has always been stubborn when it comes to learning and finding things that interest her such as coloring can really help keep her interest.

We made puppets out of the coloring pages.
My oldest put on a puppet show.

I tend to keep the coloring pages plain to allow for creativity. Blank spaces that can be filled up with your little ones imagination. This time my daughters chose to cut the pages out and turn them into puppets. If your little ones aren’t into puppets you could always cut the pages out and glue them onto construction paper allowing your young learners to practice their scissor skills.

My oldest insisted on making her own Zombie coloring page.
My youngest and I drew a cat together and she came up with the sentence for the page.

My oldest daughter insisted that my zombies did not look like authentic zombies. Therefore she had to make her own coloring page that was much more zombie-like. My youngest joined in and helped me draw a cat. Allowing your little ones to create their own coloring pages gives them an opportunity to be creative. Also depending on their age it gives them a chance to type if you choose to use the computer. Easily it could be done on a piece of paper and the sentence written by hand which would be a great opportunity to work on their hand writing which is even better.

Bee theme coloring pages for early readers.

My oldest daughter tends to panic when she sees spiders and other bugs and insects crawling around. Therefore I decided it felt fitting to learn all about bugs for the summer. To help make her a little less nervous around bugs by learning what they do and how they can be helpful.

I made several early reading coloring pages with a bee theme to get my daughter reading over the weekend that would go along with our summer theme we will be starting soon. When my daughter reads she gets really tripped up with sight words and often tries to sound them out. As a simple clue I bolded all sight words on the coloring pages that way she would know that it is a sight word and it’s a word best to be remembered rather than sounded out.

The above markers and crayons are what I use with my youngest daughter (age 2) during coloring time. She was always getting into her older sisters (age 6) markers so I decided to buy her a set better suited for her age that would promote proper grip. The bees book is perfect for early readers such as my oldest daughter. It comes with just enough information yet not to much in which it is overwhelming to read. The box sets are perfect for early readers. I bought the Kindergarten set to cover levels a-d to help my daughter get through Kindergarten. The First Grade set I bought to prepare my daughter for what she will be expected to read in First Grade.
