Mrs. Broome has been joining us on Wednesday mornings this year to share her joy of reading and writing. The children adore her as she always brings surprises in her bags of materials and delightful voices as she reads aloud. One way to inspire children to write is to encourage them to draw a picture of what they want to write about. Unfortunately, children sometimes become discouraged with their drawing because it doesn’t come out the way they want. Mrs. Broom has a solution for that! She put together a set of guides for the children to follow so that they could easily draw a variety of animals. The children thought these guides were terrific and have continued to use the guides in their writing work and in their art work.
