Draw Write Now Giveaway!

I'm super excited to host this giveaway!  I love doing guided drawing with my students.  I try to do one per week.  You can see how my class drew the Mo Willems pigeon {here}.  I've noticed that a lot of my special ed students have such a hard time drawing.  I don't know if it's a fine motor deficit or something else, but this seems to be a common struggle with my students.

These Draw Write Now books are AMAZING!  The whole set has 8 different books that cover some really great topics: weather, the Statue of Liberty, transportation, story book characters, rainforest animals, and so many more!  Almost every theme and topic is covered in these books.




The drawings are super easy for kids to follow.  I also love how they've included a version in color with more details that can help sparks your students' imagination.  There's also a short writing sample.


Ever since my set arrived last week, all of the neighborhood girls have been drawing up a storm.  My 7-year-old daughter has drawn almost every picture from the Native Americans and Pilgrims section in Book Three.  Even my 14-year-old has gotten into the drawing!

Barker Creek has been super gracious and is giving away a whole set of Draw Write Now books to one of you lucky followers!

And to go along with this giveaway, I'm donating my All About Reindeer Mini-Unit.  Think of it like  Christmas in July!  :)


I even made a little freebie practice page!  There is one page that goes along with my reindeer unit and one that can be used for any guided drawing activity.  Click on the picture to download your copy.


This giveaway will end at midnight on July 4th.  I'll announce a winner on July 5th.

  1. I will be using these books in my room in both my writing center and illustration station. I will also be rotating them out with my ECE Co teacher, who has several students in her case load that love to draw.

  2. I love Draw Write Now! It really helped my oldest daughter with her handwriting. I would use it in my fine motor center and incorporate it into art lessons.

  3. I bought the one with the Polar Bears. Kids loved it! So did I. We used it during our Arctic Unit. Doing a lesson a week would be a great idea. Getting the whole set would be awesome. Thanks for the freebie :0)

  4. I'd use it with Kid Writing when students get stuck drawing the perfect picture and never get around to the actual writing.

  8. I would use these books during writer's workshop to add details to our drawings (and to help with handwriting). I would also use them during science and social studies units! Thanks for sharing this resource!

  9. My kinder-bears would love having access to these books. We 'travel' to so many areas during our school day. During our Writers-Crafting, these books let even the most reluctant participants have the chance to create something that they can share...beyond 'bean' people and animals. Honestly, I cannot tell you how many times I've relied on similar step-by-step books to create people or animals during our 'engagement' time of a lesson. It helps their poor old teacher feel a lot better than when she draws stick-figures and then has to convince her kinders that this REALLY is a bear, not bush with legs. Thank you for offering this great set, and the extras, too.

  13. These books look awesome! I think my kids would love them. I agree with many of my students struggling with combining creativity, fine motor, and the planning to execute most drawings. I have one student that is a super talented comic illustrator.

  14. I have seen these books before, and my kiddos would LOVE to use then in our homeschooling lessons this year!

  15. I would love to use them during literacy centers, probably in the fine motor center or writing.

  16. My students come with less and less knowledge or experience with drawing. They don't seem to get adding details. This series would help with building that school in a fun and structured way. Even their teacher could Lear something:-)

  17. What great books. I have never heard of them before but I know my resource English fifth graders will love them! I bet the older students will too so I sure hope I win them. I'm bookmarking their website so I don't forget about them because I must have some for my literacy center. Even though the standards listed are for k-3, I can tell by the words on the pages that they will be challenging for my students and following directions to draw the pictures will be great for them. Thank you for sharing, Heather

  18. I was a first grade teacher for ten years and I understand how important it is to get the artistic juices flowing. I've noticed how much children enjoy drawing out their ideas. I like to invite the children to use these drawings on whatever the topic is to refer back to during writing activities.

  23. Thank you so much for hosting! I would use them during my writing block. We do a lot of directed drawing so that the students have detailed illustrations which will lead to more detailed writing!
