FREE Coloring Pages For Kids

Teaching English as a second language to younger students presents its own set of special challenges - and while it takes some patience, it also brings its own unique rewards. While your younger students may not be able to handle all the types of exercises that your older students can, they bring a fresh-faced enthusiasm into the classroom - and they often turn out to be full of funny surprises.

If your class is still at the age where they’re first learning to read - even in their own native language - you can’t exactly just hand them worksheets and expect them to figure out what to do. One approach to this is simply to focus on listening and speaking instead - but even those activities work more smoothly if you’ve got some pictures and words to point out along the way. Or you may want to organize some games, so your high-energy youngsters can burn off some  excess energy while they learn.

Whichever approach you take - and, if you’re like most experienced ESL teachers, you’ll probably try a combination of all the above - BusyTeacher.org’s 233 coloring pages for kids will make sure you never run out of activities to present. When used in combination with the more detailed exercises in your ESL textbook, they’ll provide a wealth of diverse exercises that’s sure to keep your youngsters engaged and interested.

In fact, the name “coloring pages” doesn’t really do justice to the sheer variety of resources we’ve got here. While some are just simple sheets of colorable pictures and vocabulary words, others provide short sentences for kids who’ve learned to read a little, or encourage kids to draw the pictures that match with the vocab words listed. Some even help kids design their own crafts, which they can take home and show off to proud parents.

Planning a special themed unit? We’ve got whole sets of coloring pages designed around themes like holidays, international cultures, foods, animals, body parts, and many others. But in any lesson, these worksheets will serve as a welcome switch-up from the routine of board work and speaking, and will get your kids thinking about the English language in all kinds of new and creative ways.

All these 233 coloring pages have found their way onto BusyTeacher.org thanks to the efforts of ESL teachers just like you, working all over the world. Our international community believes in sharing, which is why we’ve made every worksheet completely free to download, print, use, and share as you like. All we ask is that, if you’ve got a worksheet of your own that you’d like to share, you click the “Submit a worksheet” button at the bottom of this page, and send it our way.

BusyTeacher.org’s 233 coloring pages are here for you to use however you want - so dive in and take a look! You can choose from the top ten most popular coloring pages, or browse our whole library with the handy thumbnail view. You’ll also notice our “Quick View” feature, which lets you pop out a larger view of the first page of any worksheet, so you can see exactly what you’ll be getting when you download it. Take a look, grab any coloring pages you like, and give ‘em a try in your classroom. We’re sure your students will love ‘em!
