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 children's drawings.
The next exercise is writing. You may introduce letter formation and basic sentence structure, or focus on carefully practicing and developing handwriting skills. Our lessons are flexible; some use the drawing as a prompt to strengthen other language art skills: composition, creative writing, grammar and speech.
...while learning about the world.
Learn about the world with each lesson. 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 are actually quite full and can spark interest and further study.
