Need to keep early finishers busy while the rest of the class catches up? Model a healthy stress reduction technique as students head into final exams? Help your own over-taxed teacher brain unplug for a few precious minutes?
I built these not-too-cheesy coloring pages for you!
You could use this free collection of 16 coloring pages in a variety of ways:
• Give to early finishers during testing/quiet tasks to allow time for other students to finish their work.
• Keep students’ hands busy while listening to audiobooks or podcast-based lessons.
• Create a stress reduction bulletin board where students can help themselves to their choice of coloring sheets.
• Help teens learn to calm themselves during stressful moments by focusing on a mindfulness task.
• Use in counseling offices as part of art therapy or SEL training.
• Build a take-and-make library display with books on meditation, stress reduction, and/or how to build a mandala.
• As a random act of kindness, leave a bunch of coloring pages and some colored pencils or markers in the faculty break room. Teachers need a brain break, too!
Here’s a two-minute video I made for my YouTube channel that covers the same ground:
How else might teachers, counselors, or librarians use these coloring pages? Leave those ideas below!
Did you or your students use these pages to make something awesome? Snap a photo and tag or message me @randazzled on TikTok and Facebook or @randazzo_laura on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations!
Be well, teacher friend.
