First day of school

Coloring books

Today in my SPED 210 class, we discussed the coloring books and if they are really good for smaller child. I argued that they hurt a child's creativity, (because you would be telling them that they can't draw, and they must follow this model) but with an older person (ie: our lovely RPAs) they are wonderful for them because it encourages them to be creative in ways that they normally wouldn't (because Bill and Andrew can't draw, but they can color tons of pictures of superheros and put them up!)
