Template Head Drawing

First I use a template to trace this head on each child's paper and make a master for their name writing.

Then with me at the dry erase board the children follow me slowly step by step
as I draw first and they copy me.We talk a lot about the four senses as we draw the face.
If they say they cannot do it I just say that is why I am teaching you now.
 If they have the pencil control they will then try and usually do really well.

Names are added at the writing table

I am always shocked how exactly these drawings look like the child who drew them. It is as if they are channeling their being through their art.
