Category Description for Creating Line Designs:

Okay, so you might start using these books as a means of teaching your children how to draw straight lines with a ruler. (Some call these "pre-drafting" skills). But they are also helpful in reinforcing the top-to-bottom and left-to-right orientation needed for reading and for general success in our top-to-bottom-left-to-right culture! They also serve as great exercises in following directions and provide experience in completing several small tasks to accomplish a quality finished product. But this isn't why kids enjoy them so much. Canvassing my own children yielded the following insights; "It's really neat that, just by connecting the dots, you can create a design like that," "I liked drawing the lines," "they were really neat," and "it was fun coloring in the designs." There you have it, from the "experts." Books progress in difficulty both in design and technique. In book one, pairs of numbers are connected. In volume two, pairs of letters and numbers are connected (more lines). By book three, designs require you to lift your pencil at some parts along the line to create the proper drawing. In book four, designs are even more elaborate. Reproducible.

a skill missing in many of my art students. I recommend parents use this fun easy book to teach their kids many lessons to holding a ruler and drawing a straight line to complex detailed art work. I start my art students in Kindergarten in these books, however I use it for my 4-6th grade students as a quick warm up.

The Creating Line Designs series has been a great hit in our household Not often does the development of fine motor skills and right brain development coincide with creating something fun and unique Although they were originally purchased for our son who has lagging eye-hand coordination and poor visual discrimination everyone in the family has found them to be a great diversion The first book begins with super-simple patterns to draw in a dot-to-dot fashion and progresses through the series to intricate designs that can thrill a preteen and his dad (It's even peaked an interest in drafting!) When you've completed the lines color in the patterns for display Of course the fact that the pages are reproducible within the family or co-op class add loads to the value This is on my list of good finds that will stay on the shelf until we have grandchildren PS Keep a few copies ready for the neighborhood children Take my word they'll be asking
