As an occupational therapist I encourage the development of pre-writing lines and shapes through drawing. Modelling is a wonderful way to show children how to experiment with lines and shapes. Children learn through participation how lines can be orientated in different ways to achieve different outcomes. They learn that with some control they can depict things from their every day experiences.
If you like drawing alongside your child; use the first "draw with me" pages for ideas for simple drawing you can do together.
This printable set encourages your child to experiment with lines and shapes to complete differently themed pages. You may show your child how to draw certain lines and patterns. Encourage them to experiment with size (draw something wider, draw it longer, draw it smaller), experiment with colour and experiment with different drawing implements.
This printable set of drawings provides opportunities to trace, draw and experiment. Do encourage your child to go beyond tracing and to experiment with drawing!
This printable includes 2 "draw with me" pages, 25 "finish the drawing" pages and 5 "seasonal drawing" pages.
