I am always looking for new ways to incorporate interesting drawing with the arduous task of learning how to draw diagonal lines, which are very difficult to learn! After children begin to draw rudimentary oblique lines, the next step is to draw diagonals in several directions and spatially accurate.
Drills are boring. Scary spiders are fun!
- White board or chalk board to practice
- Paper and drawing tool (markers, pencils, crayons, etc.)
- As diagonal lines develop, additional detail to the legs can be introduced
- Drawn faces are left to the creativity of the child (that’s the fun part!!)
- Spatial awareness increases
- Integration of diagonal lines, important for letter writing develops
- White & Black boards allow for practice; erasing strengthens hands and fingers
