When kinder and first graders are first learning how to draw, the shapes need to be really simple, as in “draw an upside down U”. Or “make a large J”. In the beginning, it’s all about mastering shapes.

A helpful tip? Do fold the paper twice to get the center guidelines shown with the dashed lines. They really help students gauge the center of the paper, instead of just guessing.
