We begin with a drawing.
The child draws a subject (tiger), then completes the picture using their own creative ideas and techniques (tall grass blowing in the wind)—they draw their world. See SAMPLE LESSONS.
A writing exercise is next. Simply introduce letter formation and basic sentence structure or focus on carefully practicing and developing handwriting skills.
Or, use the drawing as a prompt to strengthen other language art skills: composition, creative writing, grammar and speech.
...and learn about the world.
The lessons in our books, Draw Write Now, Books 1-8, are grouped into themes (unit studies) which introduce history, science, social studies and geography.
The themes are broad and appear simple, but actually, are quite full. Often, the lessons spark an interest in further study.
