Drawing With Young Children {freebie} Apples & Pete the Cat

Drawing is the basis of writing in the early educational years and, sadly, many come with no or limited experiences with the arts as they enter school.  Luckily, although they are lacking experience, they ALL have the capability if scaffolded appropriately.  Just as I don't believe in always giving children topics that they HAVE to write about, I don't believe in always giving them things that they HAVE to draw, but I do like to provide sporadic guided drawings as a means to encourage and develop the inner artist in all of them which allows the juices to flow more easily as they become writers!
Here is a kit that I created as a freebie for beginning drawers.  It is a great place to start and has step by step picture and language directions.  You can print off the directions for older children to follow themselves or do it along with younger children.  It is also perfect to project up onto the "big screen" as I call it, so that learners can follow along as you draw with them.

Also available is a more in depth product that not only guides children to create pumpkins, but also provides activities and fun that teach about the pumpkin lifecycle through writing and drawing:

Also available is my Pete the Cat guided drawing kit.  Everyone loves Pete and the kids are so excited when they actually draw him themself!  Many activities are provided to work with the students' drawings:

  1. I LOVE this, and I love the term "guided drawing." I have been doing something similar for a few years, and also struggled with the idea of telling them what to draw. However, I found that certain guided drawing lessons improved ALL of their independent drawing. Things like "how to draw a person with a body," "how to draw a person with clothes," "how to add a setting," and "how to draw what you see" have been really successful for me. It was really nice to read a post from someone who shares the same perspective!
