Many students struggle with drawing a person. I have used the Handwriting without Tears Mat Man to teach my students how to draw a person. Through the Handwriting without Tears program they teach students to draw a person using the wood pieces. My students were still having a difficult time drawing a person from the wood pieces without me modeling the drawing. I made picture by picture steps for drawing Mat Man. This is especially good to use with students during independent work because they have step by step directions to draw Mat Man. I have also included the lyrics to the song so that students can sing along while they are drawing.
I printed, laminated, and then put the cards on a ring so that students could flip the pages as they are drawing.
