We’ve been all about the Kevin Henkes books in my classroom over the past couple of weeks. I wanted to do a mouse-themed art activity of some kind, and this directed drawing was perfect! I started doing directed drawings with my students last year after Elyse over at Proud to be Primary blogged about her Frankenbuddies. I love directed drawings because they make it easy for kids to be successful, and they are always different!
In just a few simple steps, your students will be feeling like artists and showing off their creations!
My students had a blast with this! And now, when we journal about the characters in the Kevin Henkes books, everyone will be able to draw a mouse!
I hope you give this a try! I know that your students will love it!
