Daisy Girl Scout Coloring Pages

As a teacher since 1987, one of the very first things my principal had me master was classroom management. You see, it isn't enough to have a great lesson plan and implement it well.  In a class of 25 children, there will always be kids who finish quickly and those who need the entire period (or longer) to complete a task.

Those who finish early can quite easily get themselves into trouble if they are not kept busy in a constructive way.  As a second and then a third grade teacher, I had a list of ten different enrichment activities on the blackboard. These changed weekly so that no child could ever complain about being bored.

I covered all different kinds of learners with my enrichment activities. Some were simple art projects that fit into a holiday or reading theme, others were word puzzles, and the most difficult were fifth and sixth grade brainteasers that all were encouraged to try, but only the top students tended to get correct.

Your Daisy meeting is probably an hour long, so there isn't much chance that early finishers on project you are working on will have a ton of time left over. However, any time not spent constructively can lead to unwanted behaviors like running around, bothering the girls who are still working and simple whining.

You can prevent these behaviors from happening with Daisy coloring pages. 

Here is a list of resources to find different coloring pages.

Makingfriends.com has petal pages and Girl Scout Law coloring pages.

Scoutingweb.com has a large Daisy with all the colors listed and what they mean.

Twistynoodle.com also has several Daisy flowers from which to choose.

This image search produced more coloring pages than you could ever use!

Here are a bunch of Juliette Gordon Low coloring pages.
