Learn How To Draw Letter M For Kids
Creative Art Kids
How to draw letter M is creative letter M alphabet art for kids with Elliot and myABCdad Learning for kids.
I don’t know what it is about giant bubble letters, but they seem to invite creativity. Working in Kindergarten classrooms around the world, I always made sure to model and share a big, giant version of each upper and lower case letter of the alphabet. The kids simply loved them.
Letter introductions generally involved printing practise. We also learned the sound of each letter and an action reminder. Action reminders are a good way to jog the memory for the letter sounds should they forget. On worksheets to help practise printing, I included a big, giant bubble or block versions. It just gave children a chance to colour or add designs. Effectively it meant spending a little more time connected to the shapes of letters.
Although I would model how to draw bubble letters, it was a challenging thing for most people still learning to master holding a pencil. With Elliot, I knew he could hold a pencil. However, I was not certain he would find success drawing big, giant versions. That was, until we had a go with the letter R. He enjoyed it so much in fact, that this time with M, instead of going straight to creating 3D paper-mache versions, Elliot wanted to paint our big, giant versions first.
Outside the Lines
In this video, after drawing giant upper and lower case M’s, we do indeed paint them. And as Elliot points out during our work together, the added bonus of having originally drawn the letters with thick, black lines meant he had no problem cutting along them. Cutting the letters and presenting them on coloured paper also achieved one other thing. It seemed to help relieve some anxiety Elliot had about painting outside the lines.
Another kernel of personal learning that 10 years of Kindergarten classroom experience brings, is the knowledge that even after advocating time and again not to worry about drawing, painting etc inside or outside lines, there are some children that seem to care no matter what message you convey or try to model. It appears Elliot happens to feel the same way. So being able to cut out and mount our upper and lower case M’s helped. It also looks great. They are now posted proudly on Elliot’s bedroom wall.
