EXAMPLE DRAWING LESSON
Sophia's testimonial for Drawing Children Into Reading
Children CAN learn how to draw. When they develop those abilities their handwriting improves, their visual and spacial understanding improves, they are more confident and their self esteem improves. This project connects children to the teacher. Children use their fingers and learn to love their pencil. HAPPINESS is our magic ingredient.
