So you think you can’t draw?

Who says Microsoft Word is just for typing?

3rdgrade_illustrationHere’s how my 4th graders have been discovering their inner artist, using the hidden drawing tools. (The illustration on left was by a 3rd grader.)

They start off assuming they cannot draw. But once they have mastered the tool, ideas start to flow, as you will see below in the video.

Microsoft Drawing Tools – Part 2

Just had to share this. 4th graders using nothing but the tools in Microsoft Word. Are they ready for Adobe? See some previous work, here.

In my class I make sure they feel comfortable making mistakes, and starting all over again. It’s always inspiring to see a child who professes he/she cannot draw, use color and symmetry

When Microsoft ‘draws’ as good as a Sharpie

When I tell students that Word or PowerPoint is a versatile tool, and not just for typing of creating slides, I never know what to expect. Such as how some of them have mastered the ‘Curve’ tool in the Shapes menu.

Here’s one. Looks like a pen-and-ink sketch, doesn’t it?

It gets better! Because this is about animating.  The student’s storyboard in PowerPoint  just kept growing!
