What educators are saying

I haven’t used all the drawings, but my students loved drawing Frida Kahlo. It was a great extension activity after learning about biographies.
Love all things Book Wrangler! My students loved drawing these ladies and then listening to a book about them! We received lots of compliments about their art displayed in the hallway!

You'll also get a set of frequently asked questions and answers about directed drawing. There are also suggested books to read aloud to students to accompany each drawing.

Directed drawings are great for so many reasons: learning shapes, following directions, practicing hand-eye coordination, developing spatial and size awareness, fine-tuning those fine-motor skills, building vocabulary (I say things like parallel lines and intersect), and building confidence as budding artists. I’ve actually done directed drawings with students in grades kindergarten through grade five, and it tackles all the same skills for older students as it does younger students.

Happy drawing!
