Draw Write Now, Book 2: Christopher Columbus, Autumn Harvest, the Weather
Paperback; ISBN 9781933407562
For most children, drawing is their first form of written communication. As children mature, their imaginations often race ahead of their drawing skill. Through these creative lessons, the authors take the mystery out of drawing by teaching children to see complex objects as combinations of simple shapes. By exploring a huge range of topics-incorporating geography, history, science, and social studies-children are motivated to practice handwriting in a fun and meaningful way.
"Book Two: Christopher Columbus, Autumn Harvest, the Weather" focuses on the journey of Christopher Columbus, what fruits and animals you may find in the autumn, a and how the weather affects different kinds of transportation. Twenty one animal-based lessons (including hens, horses, bears, dogs, pigs, and more), plus three "learn more" continent-based lessons are included.

Copywork is in a block manuscript style; parents can have students write using their preferred method. A beginning teaching tip section provides a guide on implementing the book. Grades PreK-Grade3.
