I am requesting money for these materials so that students can have a quiet place to color during our weekly club time at our school. I would like to get a variety of different coloring materials, like colored pencils, crayons, and markers to suit all students' tastes. I am also planning on getting a wide variety of coloring books in order for all students to have something interesting to them. Many students are stressed out during this time, and in order to deal with the stress, students have the option to color. According to Cleveland Clinic's clinical psychologist Scott M. Bea, cites three reasons why it is calming. "Attention flows away from ourselves" and brings us into a "present-moment event." "It relaxes the brain" because we are focused on a simple event. "Low stakes make it pleasurable" because you can't mess coloring up! There is no right or wrong way to color! By supplying kids coloring books, crayons, and colored pencils, students will have an escape weekly to get away from the stress and produce a creative outlet while making friends.
