Product Description
This is a huge yearlong bundle of Directed Drawing and Writing - enough to fill your writing center for the year and then some!

Topics to cover the year are seasonal or topics that my students have found the MOST engaging, such as pets and animals from other countries. Other topics are driven by curriculum, such as patriotic symbols. There are over 53 topics!

I have organized the topics into themes, each of which have several options to last the whole season.


Autumn - scarecrow, apple with worm, sunflower, schoolhouse, squirrel
Halloween - carved pumpkin, bat, witch, black cat, spider and web
Thanksgiving - turkey, cornucopia, pilgrim, native girl, Mayflower
Spring - ladybug on grass, rainbow frog, baby bird in nest, Easter bunny, Butterfly
Patriotic Symbols - eagle, American Flag, Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell, White House
Insects - butterfly, dragonfly, bee, ladybug, spider
On the Farm - sheep, cow, pig, rooster, duck
African Animals- cheetah, elephant, giraffe, lion, zebra
My Pets - bunny, bird, cat, mouse, turtle
Sea CreaturesSea Creatures - crab, fish, jellyfish, octopus, shark
Mother's Day single set
Father's Day single set
My Pet Puppy single set

Students draw pictures while following the simple directions written in each step-by-step frame. These can be used alone in drawing centers or whole class art lessons.

Using In Literacy Centers:
There are writing prompts included with the directed drawing steps right on every page. Students are so engaged writing about their own creations!
There are several levels of supported writing prompts:

*Writing a comic
*Writing a sentence with self-editing checkboxes
*Writing with sentence starters
*Writing with story guides for "first, next, finally"
*Free writing with a few lines
Free writing with a whole page of lines

Students quickly become experts at this independent activity while building their skills in sentence writing, story writing and drawing.

There are many individual sets available, but you will save a huge amount by getting them all in this bundle. You can find individual sets here:
