Product Description
A fun, unique way to get to know students at the start of the school year. Works especially well in math and/or science classes, although it can be used anywhere.

Students are asked to create a self-portrait following specific instructions to use "glyphs" or symbols for different features. For example - "If you loved school last year, give yourself a round head. If you liked school last year, give yourself a square head. If you thought school was just "ok" last year, give yourself a triangle head."

After the students have drawn their self-portrait teacher can have each student display and explain their portrait, or the teacher can ask students to try to find another student with a similar (or different) portrait.

Included in this download are detailed instructions, a student worksheet, and several portrait frames so students can choose their own frame. (Color and Black-and-White versions of the printables are included!)

A great "First Day of School" activity AND the finished product makes an incredibly eye-catching bulletin board for Back-to-School Night that parents go nuts for!

What is included in this resource:
----------------------------
• comprehensive teacher's guide
• printable student worksheets
• picture frame printables (color and b&w included)


What teachers are saying about this resource
----------------------------
• I HAVE USED THIS EVERY YEAR SINCE I BOUGHT IT! I love it and it's a fun way to introduce students at the beginning of the year.
• This is a WONDERFUL activity for the beginning of the year. It got my students talking and laughing and the final product looked great as a room decoration. I color-coded classes which came in real handy when parents of my 6th and 7th graders took pictures of their kids' handiwork at Back to School night! My co-teacher and I created our own as well to show the kids and we hung them as nameplates on the front of our desks for the entire year. I will be doing this again this year with my 6th grade students.
• Unique idea and the kids really enjoyed this!
