Cartoon-Alligator-776x1024My afterschool Cartoon class had fun with this alligator last week. Some kinders needed help, others on up through 5th grade were able to draw pretty cute characters on their own, following my step by step directions.

I do find that the two grid lines make a really big difference in having students get off to a good start. Most though rather balk at the idea of having creases on their paper, so lately I have been using my computer to lightly print the grid for them. You could also just lightly draw pencil lines for them too, whatever you have time for.
