Welcome Back to School!
If you are a primary teacher you will want to grab this freebie and all the others you will find on www.kindergartencrayons.blogspot.com.
Typically we all do some version of a self portrait but this time you can take it up a notch by having your students draw you too. This does not have to be done in one sitting but it makes an adorable bulletin board when you add in a photograph of each student to the mix. Students love being honored in this manner.
At the end of the year pull out the second page of this freebie and have them repeat this activity. Be sure to let students see their first attempts and often they are shocked. It is such a fantastic way to celebrate their growth! I place both of these in their student portfolios as two important benchmarks.
For older students you can use this freebie but have them do a writing about themselves and you once you have given them some information. It adds a little fun to those first days that can be so stressful.
Please visit my blog for many other Back to School ideas and freebies and please follow me so you know when I post them.
I have a variety of new materials that were designed to get you on the right path to the Common Core!
Make this the best year ever!
