Once students become proficient readers, they get a bit lazy and forget to completely take in their surroundings and their environment at hand. You can help your students through this by trying to adjust your voice and message to their level. It may also help to read the directions with students and have them underline anything that you, as a teacher, feel is essential and requires so repeating. As students begin to progress to middle school, they will need to make certain that they read every step of their standardized tests and understand what is required of them. As kids move on to High School regardless of the task that is assigned to them, they need to be able to respond to it in stride. This series of worksheets will help students by making sure that they are paying attention to every little detail that is presented to them.
These activity sheets contain a variety of simple pictures for your students to color. Instructions are provided for each picture, directing the students to use specific colors on designated parts of the picture, as well as drawing additional elements within it. The assorted pictures include connect the dots, incomplete pictures, simple color keys, color by letter, and more. Students may also be asked to research the subject, so instructors will want to have reference material on hand. Fun Idea: Have your students make up simple stories, songs, or poems about the subject of the picture they just colored!
