All About Me "selfie" drawing and writing activity for classroom teachers and art teachers. This activity is a great way to start the year with an introduction and end the year with a reflection!

This All About Me resources is a teacher favorite. It's a great first week of school / back to school activity that is also useful at other times of the year—Back to School, Halloween, New Years, and End of the Year. 

My student selfie drawing/writing activity is going to have you on the "favorite trendy teacher" list with your students (and parents) for sure! The 21st-century teacher is hip and in with the times—this lesson will prove that to your students!

Included in this resource are selfie drawing/writing activities for: 

  • Back-to-School
  • Halloween
  • New Year's Resolutions
  • End of The Year Activities

The classroom collection of these student selfies make for a great bulletin board display!!

Using the templates I have created, students draw their selfies (self-portraits) onto a smartphone template handout. They then select from the variety of text messages (writing prompts) and answer questions for back to school, Halloween, New Year's, or End of the Year.

This download comes with a PDF slideshow presentation with "famous selfies" examples using artists like Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh. Through this fun slide show, students will get to see a modern twist on self-portraits, as they commonly call selfies. This lesson is so much fun, and your kids will love it! 

This file includes a PowerPoint file with editable slides so you can adjust the product perfectly for any language or interests. Please have a working knowledge of PowerPoint if you intend to edit these slides by inserting text boxes. 

Editable slides included:

  • Art history slides of Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and Andy Warhol. 
  • Blank art history slides so you can add in an artist from your local area or any artist of your choice. 
  • Blank instructions (with images only) so you can translate my English directions to any language you would like. 
  • Blank text messaging pages to write any writing prompt that you want and in any language. 

Use this lesson to assess your students' fine motor skills, drawing skills, creativity, and overall willingness to put effort into their work. You can tell a lot about a child by their artwork—especially their self-portraits (err, I mean selfies). Most of all, have some fun and let your students show off their creativity to you! 

This lesson is not a formal drawing lesson. However, it could easily be combined with one.
