Promoting the Development of Graphic Skills
1. Demonstrate shape to child – start just above the level where the child is successful,
   i.e. if he is able to successfully draw circles, get him to draw horizontal and vertical
   lines.

2. Child traces over your pattern.

3. If continues to be unable to draw on own – use dot to dot patterns, i.e.




       Stress directionality – top to bottom – left to right


4. Child draws from your example.

5. Child can draw figure from verbal description.

6. Child draws independently.


These ideas can be used in daycares and ECE settings by drawing happy faces, sticks,
incorporating designs into patterns, etc.
