Have you checked out our Giant Colouring Sheet?
Our amazing designer Clayton has put together this MASSIVE colouring sheet for you and your students. Let your kids go wild with some pencils and crayons and you have yourself a wonderful, colour-popping addition to your learning space!
The best thing? This isn’t just a colouring activity. It has a heap of wonderful uses which will make your life as a teacher a whole lot easier. Just in time for the end of the term, too!
Our Giant Colouring Sheet has a number of amazing uses to help your students in whichever way they need. Individually or as a group, your class will love the opportunity to be creative with the funky and unique designs across this 8-page spread.
How to assemble:
If you’re printing this resource in all of its 8-page A3 glory, there are some simple steps to follow:
- Print out the Giant Colouring Sheet one-sided on A3 paper.
- Cut along the DOTTED lines only, starting with page A1. As you progress through each page, align it with the border on the previous page. E.g Page A2 aligns with the border labelled A2 on page A1.
- Continue through this process, aligning B1 underneath A1 and so forth.
- Once you’ve reached page B4, cut off the entire border, attach and you’re done!
You may like to place this resource on a communal table in your classroom, or alternatively why not back it with some cardboard and hang it in a blank space on the lower half of a wall in your classroom? This way students can sit in front of it and colour, and it doesn’t matter if they press a little too hard!
If you have some special students who would benefit from a calm down every now and then, this is the resource for you. Mindful Colouring has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety in children (and adults!).
Have this resource ready to go in the corner of your room for when a child needs it most.
You may like to have a class discussion before introducing this colouring sheet as a mindfulness tool.
You want your students to understand that everyone colours in their own unique way, and they need to be respectful of that. No one gets ‘dibs’ on any section of the page – if you’ve started colouring an area but run out of time, then it’s ok for someone to take over and colour it in the way they choose. This is what makes resources like this unique and a whole-class project!
This spread also prints well across A4 pages!
If you are wanting to inspire your students to finish their work more quickly as a whole class, why not set a group colouring challenge?
- Group your students in groups of 4 or 5.
- Print a copy of the Giant Colouring Sheet for each group on A4.
- Each time a member of a group finishes their work early, they get to go over to their designated colouring station to spend a quick 5 minutes on their groups spread.
- Whichever group colours in their pages the fastest (and neatest!) gets the prize!
Do you have students who are hesitant to participate in drawing activities? They either don’t think they’re good enough at drawing or can’t think of anything to create!
The funky designs on this colouring sheet are not just good for filling with colour, they’re also great for providing your students with some drawing inspiration!
With an assortment of everyday objects turned into neat illustrations, this colouring spread makes an amazing stimulus for creative drawing.
Independent Fast Finisher
Colouring in as a fast-finisher reward is a well-loved pastime for many students!
Did you now you can also print this colouring sheet off in its entirety on one sheet of A4? That’s right!
Print one copy of this amazing resource on A4 for each student. This will give fast finishers and busy hands a quiet activity to colour at their desks, completely independently.
Use this activity as a quick concentration task to get your students back on track after a busy lunch break.
Finding little elements in the Giant Colouring Sheet is a great way to help students switch their brains on, and zoom in on the classroom!
Why not ask questions such as:
- How many musical instruments are in the picture? Who can name them?
- Can you find and colour in all the numbers?
- Which everyday shapes can you see?
- How many stars are in this picture?
- Name all the verbs you can see in this picture.
The list of things to spot is endless!
