Through directive drawing, (step-by-step instructions) we drew three bunnies, three different ways - from the front, the back and the profile. This exercise is great for my English language learners because they have to listen to instructions and it also illustrates important vocabulary. Did I mention the exposure to other cultures?
My students drew with markers - A REALLY big deal if you are 5 years old, pasted their papers on to red paper and placed a piece of Japanese paper with rabbits for decoration, ALL BY THEMSELVES!
I am so proud of them! It makes me all warm and fuzzy just looking at them.
