L'utilisation de la couleur à l'école maternelle

Abstract : Color is everywhere in our lives. Everything that surrounds us is made of colors, in as much as we forget about them. However colors play a major part in our behaviours and emotions. Each color has its story, its codes and connotations. This dissertation focuses on the use of colors in nursery school, how it affects children and their learning abilities. Based on existing researches on this topic, and the studies I have put into place, two statements emerge: first color facilitates learning in nursery, second color is not thought about as a real tool. Its potential is under exploited and its power is sometimes not fully utilised. In the light of these statements it is worth considering changes to our practices. First of all, it matters to change classroom organisation. Colors groups may be thought through in different ways. Then using color coded zones for specific tasks could benefit some learnings. At last, integrating a training on colors destined to all first degree teachers could also be key. Indeed colors are never at the heart of educational discussions, maybe as they are not part of a specific learning by school teachers. However, such powerful and precious tool deserves mastery and an appropriate use.
