The drawing activities in Write about Me by Elsie Wilmerding help children bridge the gap between thinking and talking about an idea and writing about it. Children build their writing skills as they develop ideas that have personal meaning to them. The book features large spaces for drawing, student-centric illustrations, thematic word banks, and steps that lead young writers to add details to their writing and make content area connections. A great prelude to the Just Write series. Grade 1.
