Of course, we began with me modeling how I go about drawing my room at home. First the walls, then the door and windows, then the closet and finally the furniture.
We talked about what was in their rooms and wrote the names of those features or things--window, closet, bed, dresser--on the drawings. Using the easel for drawing and writing helped them keep their wrists extended as they wrote and promoted a thumb and first two fingers grasp of the crayon. Letter formation and spelling practice were a bonus.
My bonus was insight into their lives.
