Drawing is a process that all children naturally engage in, from the time they first discover they can hold a crayon.
I have collaborated with English Teacher, she was teaching spelling of fruits and vegetables for 3rd grade.She said she was finding difficulty in children to identify names of fruits and vegetables even though they can spell it after teaching.So we decided to make children to draw, colour so that it helps to retain in their memory.
Children were given names of fruits and vegetables in English class and later practiced them in Drawing class by drawing, coloring and naming them.We noticed that children were more engaged and enjoyed while learning English through Drawing.
