Are you searching for a way to avoid boring writing lessons? I was, so I did a little research on the subject of drawing. I found out that when children write or draw, they discover how to make observations. Drawing and other art techniques teach students to look for detail and it also helps them to see similarities and differences. It even enables them to become more aware of spatial awareness and it strengthens memory. I was thinking to myself, why aren’t my students drawing more? Are you thinking the same thing? If so, then you'll want to get this art journal packet full of ideas and lessons to integrate writing with drawing and art techniques.
This packet will show you how to use an art journal in the areas of reading, grammar, social studies, science, and math. It's filled with many ready-to-use ideas to inspire you and your students to love writing throughout the year and you can easily adapt these lessons to make them your own. These ideas have been tested in my classroom with resounding praise from my students. Student examples are included. If you want to love to teach writing, try out this method. It works!
For use with grades 3-6, but could easily be adapted for primary grades as well.
