Do your students enjoy directed drawings? Mine always have! I noticed that once my students learned how to draw something, they’d try to incorporate it into their writing. My students also love to make books so that got my wheels spinning!
I decided to make some directed drawing booklets to provide an opportunity to draw AND write! These booklets are perfect for 1st-3rd graders!
I just released my Halloween set. Take a peek at one of them here:
How to use them:
- For emergent writers: Copy one sided (just the directed drawing part with the side of text) so that students don’t get overwhelmed.
- For more proficient writers: Copy them booklet style to give students more opportunities to draw and more space to write.
These directed drawing activities are perfect to use in centers, with reluctant writers, as early finishers, homework, or use them as a whole class writing activity during writer’s workshop time!
I suggest copying a few sets of these and having them on hand as time fillers too!
