This is a yearlong bundle of weekly Directed Drawing and Writing activities - enough to fill your writing center EVERY WEEK for the year - and then some! Directed drawing is fun, easy, and no prep for your weekly art and writing center!
This bundle includes 53 directed drawing lessons in this huge bundle!
Each lesson includes 9 pages of differentiated writing prompts for you to choose from, which allows you to work on the same drawing lesson with many different writing levels and support for all students.
UPDATE! I've added a set of EDITABLE writing templates that you can use with any of the step-by-step drawing directions.
UPDATE! I've added a link to view my new Directed Drawing VIDEOS! These are SO fun and simple - just click PLAY and let your students draw along with the video! You can pause at any time and play as many times as you like!
