Hey teaching friends! How many of you have students that LOVE to draw all over everything? I know, even as a child, I loved to doodle my name and little hearts and rainbows all over my papers. Now that I think about it, my teachers probably grimaced every time my work came in. lol!
Keeping with that idea, Barker Creek Publishing sent me a whole set of Draw Write Now books and if you haven’t seen them, you should check them out! While I can draw a mean heart or rainbow, students will be the first to tell you, I can’t draw much else. But this book is AWESOME and I can draw a few things now from the super easy directions.
And I LOVE how it includes writing, fun facts, open-ended questions, and an answer guide. It is perfect for cross-curriculum when you need to double up and include science, social studies, or math into your ELA time. Or use as a center where students have free choice to pick from the prompts. They will be begging you to do their work.
