research and drawing to learn

     As children move from Sabot preschool into kindergarten, first and second grade, they transition from drawing as the primary written language, to more use of letters and words. Here you can see research in action in early elementary school, which includes drawing about carnivorous plants as well as writing words and sentences gleaned from the books. 

Here is a site with lots of information on drawing to learn; drawingtolearn.com

              Another of my favorite resources is Margaret Brooks "Drawing to Learn" available from NAEYC; www.naeyc.org/DrawingtoLearn.pdf
