Product Description
This essay is a great way to get to know your students, personally and as writers. I use this at the beginning of the year in my middle school language arts courses to have students write an essay about a subject they know well - themselves. The students have a guide from start to finish. They know what each paragraph should be about, the editing expectations, and then it is published and we set them out for open house. There are art activities that I usually have them do to go along with it, like a fingerprint that I have them trace and write about themselves as a pre-write, or there is a tracing of a hand that they decorate to represent themselves. These were both from Teachers Pay Teachers, so I didn't post them. Have fun getting to know your students and let me know if you have a question. Thanks for visiting!
