You do not say what age level you are teaching or if they are streamed.

However, there is one sure thing you need to know. Find out how good =
they are at what they should know, if anything. All kids have inner =
resources. Where they are now is your starting point.

Tritten gives the first exercise in drawing as favourite person=85 And put in as much detail about every part that you =
can remember > Look at all those drawings as information and use it as =
the foundation. And praise the kids for what they can recall. From then =
on, plan every lesson scrupulously including the timing right down to =
the last minute. Read Rhonda Kellog. Kids as young as five can learn to =
draw from observation.

Have fun. You have chosen a great career.
