Today I picked up Evangeline at pre-school. Her teacher told her to show me her paper. The coloring was very nice–all in the lines, every area filled in. Flash back to last year. Nevin, in the same pre-school class, very seldom ever colored an entire page. If there was a spot of color in an area, then the job was done. Calvin was the same way. Evangeline sits around in the evening with crayons or markers and just colors for entertainment. I never saw this activity with the boys. If they were sitting down to color, it normally required scissors and glue, too, so they could “do” something. I am not implying this means girls are better or smarter than boys; it is just interesting to note the differences.
