Category Description for Draw-Write-Now:

These are unusual books, combining art instruction with handwriting practice, and incorporating more than a little history and science instruction along the way. Based on a successful formula created by a now 75-year-old former teacher to inspire her students, these inviting books might become your child's favorite part of the school day! They are non-consumable, as your child will do the actual art work and writing on separate paper. Each book is divided into three themes (see below) with a total of 21 lessons. In the spirit of Drawing with Children, most of the lessons begin with seeing the targeted objects as basic shapes and lines. In each lesson, a colorful picture shows the author's model artwork, with neatly penned text on ruled lines underneath. Step-by-step drawing instruction for the main object in the picture is contained on the facing page. Usually, this begins with basic shape(s), then details are added a little at a time. After you introduce the subject of the lesson, your child follows these directions (with help, if needed) to reproduce the subject. Then, a similar or original background and details are added to the student's picture. After this is done, the accompanying text is copied. (Although text is shown in manuscript, you might want to have older children practice cursive.) Text is informational and in short sentences; the author believes this is more motivational and useful than forming isolated letters. It seems to me that, after carefully creating such beautiful artwork, children will be very careful to use their neatest and best writing underneath! After the handwriting is finished, your child can color the picture with crayons, colored pencils, or felt tips. Additional lesson-specific drawing tips and suggestions are offered in a Teaching Tips section at the end of the book. Some additional ideas and help for increasing art awareness or new techniques are also found at the end of each themed unit. Each lesson includes a related question to promote thinking and discussion. Answers to each are also provided at the end of each unit, along with a suggested book to read that will expand on the topic. If you incorporate this literature, each theme could become a complete unit study! We would recommend using the Draw-Write-Now softcover blank workbook with a framed blank space on one page with dotted half lines on the opposite page to keep all your drawing and handwriting creations together. Available in 3/8” and 5/8” ruled dotted half lines.

I'm using this for my second grader as an art / handwriting / history course this year. I think he will love it.

Our family loves these drawing and copy writing books. This one will go well with my 2nd grader's study of American history.

I believe drawing pictures of what you are studying to be an effective method for retaining information.

This works great with our study of Early America.

My daughter loves art. She has completed book 1 & 2. She is looking forward to working through the rest of the series.

We have Books 1 and 5. I was not interested in the content of Book 2, so Book 3 it is. Nice for copywork and, of course, drawing.

These books are great! I've used others in the series and my 5 year old loves them. We will use these for MFW Adventures next!

I bought Book 3 for my children for use with a unit study on American Indians What a joy! My then 8 yo has always shown an interest in art but felt frustrated at her own efforts I wasn't really any help since I don't have a "natural" ability DWR shows that you can learn skills to be better and that it isn't all about natural talent She is thrilled at her results and now feels (and rightly so) so much more talented which just feeds her appetite for more Plus her penmanship have improved and the books are also filled with interesting facts that helped to enhance out unit study which was from another company And since the books are not consumable they are a very reasonable price as well I will continue to purchase these

My 5-year-old was stuck in stick-figure mode until we got book 3 of this program We don't use it for the handwriting bit yet but it has taught him confidence in drawing cars train and even astronauts I'm now buying more volumes just to keep his confidence up
