Perfect first week activity to get to know your students. It’s easy to make! 1) Cut along the dotted lines 2) Fold in half to make a book. That’s it. The students can then write about themselves and illustrate their book.
The layers are organized logically. Like this. Brick building, grass, sun, and stars as if you are starting in the building and looking outside. Also each layer has a symbolic meaning. Keep reading to find out!
The first layer: YOUR FOUNDATION (bricks)
Students write about the basics of themselves.
The second layer: HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO GROW? (grass)
Students write about ways they would like to improve this year compared to last year.
The third layer: HOW DO YOU SHINE? (sun)
Students write about their talents.
The fourth layer: REACH FOR THE STARS! (stars, outerspace)
Students write about their goals and how they will accomplish them.
