look in a mirror at how all the body parts are attached, then show them the
difference between drawing a stick figure, which cannot be cut out, and one
drawn with shapes. I stress that as a child, their body should be 5 heads
hight. Some do pretty good withthat, others don't. If you go to my website,
you can see a sample . Go to
Click on art gallery, click on 2001 then first grade. Janet
