Directed Drawing Reading Celebration Week {FREEBIE}

Directed Drawing Tutorial for Reading Celebration Week {FREEBIE}:  We’ve been out for snow all last week, so I am excited to get back into my classroom (my home away from home).  I am a little behind though from being out and this week being our Reading  Celebration makes it even more jam-packed with stuff to do!
One of the things on my to-do list is a directed drawing of a cat…fun, right? Directed Drawing Reading Celebration Week {FREEBIE} will be a hit!
I’ve had a lot of comments about folks having difficulty with directed drawings. To help those teachers out, I created a printable and a very quick video for you!  If you like it, leave a comment and I will do another for my leprechaun directed drawing from last year {HERE}
The video should prep you enough so that you can lead your class in their own directed drawings! =)

For more ideas, printables, and freebies, for your celebration week, check out my post {HERE}
Or check out my Reading Celebration Pack on TpT {HERE}
I also finished my Alligator Close Read!  You can find it {HERE} and it’s been added to my Close Read Bundle #2! (you may need to go download it again if you’ve already purchased it!)
 I hope you love it!


  1. My first comment didn't post…but It said something like. I LOVE this! I had something else planned for art this week (not as cute) but I am soooo ditching that and doing THIS!! I would love to see a leprechaun!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!! My kinders did your Leprechaun one last year and they did an SEUSTASTICAL JOB, and we got alot of nice compliments! Can't wait to do this tomorrow!! Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. Love the video! I admit I've never done a directed drawing with my students before. The Alligator close reading looks amazing – my students are little thrill-seekers and would love it! Thanks, Jen

  4. This is probably a dumb question…with directed drawing are you JUST giving the verbal directions or are you doing the drawing up front along with them?

    1. Not a dumb question! I draw just as I do on the video with them, step by step (slower of course). There are times when they don't even know what we are going to draw! I just start with each part and they do it with me…they are so excited when they see what's revealed =)
