Every year I have students complete a "Time Capsule" page. They record their favorite candy, their favorite color, what they want to be when they grow up, and a self portrait. I measure them with a piece of string and we attach that as well. At the end of the year they complete the same page and we compare how they've changed! I use the part about their favorite candy to buy them a birthday treat I know they'll love. It's amazing how much our students change in a year!
You can save and edit this page yourself if you want to change the year or statements.
