Mat Man arrived this week! You are probably wondering... who is that?! Mat Man is a tool used by our handwriting program, Handwriting Without Tears (HWOT). Mat Man is made of big and little lines and big and little curves -- just like letters and numbers. This week Mat Man was here to help us learn to draw a person. We did a guided discovery of dry erase markers to begin our drawing. Then we took it to paper as we created our first class book!
