In the case of children who are reluctant to draw, it might be possible to attain similar beneficial effects by encouraging them to engage in focused observations that enable them to direct the educator’s drawing – in the same way that educators usually mediate children’s drawings using words and gestures. While drawing, educators can echo the children’s instructions, and substitute deictic expressions used by them with appropriate content words.
