Thanksgiving ~ Post a Selfie! and Tell About Your Day {Craftivity}

Do your students have LOTS of energy after the Thanksgiving Break as they tell all of their stories with great detail? Why not get it all on paper so that the students can present their exciting news in the form of writing as well as vocally. This creative writing craft and activity is perfect for AFTER Thanksgiving extravaganzas.

{This is best for second grade, but would be fabulous for first or for third.}

Here is an activity that combines art and writing with a "selfie" of the season.

Included in this resource:
1 ~ Instructions for use
2 ~ Table of Contents for different variations of the display and of the writing pages
3 ~ Selfie page for the illustration on the top half of the craft
4 ~ Highlights of the day page for the bottom half {with prompts for each "photo"}
5 ~ Highlights of the day page for the bottom half {without prompts for each "photo"}
6 ~ All-in-One Selfie and Highlight Page ~ {with prompts for each "photo"}
7 ~ All-in-One Selfie and Highlight Page ~ {without prompts for each "photo"}
8 ~ Writing paper with border ~ half page of lines with clipart #1 and room for a drawing
9 ~ Writing paper with border ~ half page of lines with clipart #2 and room for a drawing
10 ~ Writing paper with border ~ full page of lines with clipart #1
11 ~ Writing paper with border ~ full page of lines with clipart #2
12 ~ Writing paper with border ~ half page of handwriting lines with clipart #1 and room for a drawing
13 ~ Writing paper with border ~ half page of handwriting lines with clipart #2 and room for a drawing
14 ~ Writing paper with border ~ full page of handwriting lines with clipart #1
15 ~ Writing paper with border ~ full page of handwriting lines with clipart #2

No room for a 2-page display? Try the one-page option. Back it with construction paper which makes a colorful frame.

***** {NOTE}
When I created the original resource a couple of years ago, I thought that one selfie craft would be enough for my students. However, when I made a resource for a Selfie with Santa, THEY STILL LOVED IT!! (Or maybe it was just because Santa was involved.)

THEN, last year, one student asked me about a new selfie craft for each new holiday and event so that he could make a book.

SO...here goes! I am on a mission to get the different versions ready and posted for other classrooms. It is one thing to get them ready for your class...for the next day. It is another thing to actually get them ready and posted in time for others to use them.

Here are links to my other Post-a-Selfie craftivities (so far):
