Creating the Magic that Connects

Children to Their Own Possibilities

----- EXCITING NEWS!  -----


Using the same step-by-step method to help children achieve

a higher level of fine motor, Drawing Children Into Reading has

partnered with Drawn to Discover. In doing so, all the lessons have

been re filmed in high definition, and warm up films added to many

lessons. The Drawn to Discover team has helped create a platform to

house all of Wendy Anderson Halperin drawing lessons ONLINE. This

new site includes new and expanded lessons from the Connection Project,

as well as curriculum for teaching pre-school aged children, cursive studies, &

Social and Emotional Learning (Drawn to Peace). Coming soon to the site will be

the Explore Level geared toward helping students in later grades to further develop their fine motor skills, visual note taking abilities, genre writing study and other great benefits from Drawing Children Into Reading.


                                                  Packages are available for individuals,

                                                  classrooms, whole schools, and districts.

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.
