The Benefits of Drawing
FACT: Drawing is a great way to learn the look and feel of shapes. When kids draw shapes, they learn that shapes are made of lines and curves.
TIP: On a sunny day, invite your child to draw a circle (sun) on a calendar or a piece of scrap paper to show that it’s SUNNY! Say, “Look, the sun’s a circle!”
GROWTH: Keep drawing shapes to build math skills! Show your child how to draw a house with a square (the house) and a triangle (the roof). Can they try, too?
