Product Description
Pre-Assess your students learning preferences, start building a positive classroom community AND have fun at the same time? Yep. It's possible! You can use this glyph with your 3rd through 5th-grade students to achieve all of those goals.

Students reflect on personal preferences at school (favorite subject, least favorite subject, homework preference, classwork preference, multiple intelligence strengths {optional}, and more. Each decision they make results in the selection of the style or color for an article of clothing or a hat. In the end, when the activity is hung as a display, students similarities and differences are highlighted in a positive, attractive display.

This is an activity I’ve done in my classroom for years and it’s always a hit. Parents love seeing the choices their children make on their self-portrait, administrators like seeing children’s hard work hanging neatly in the hallway AND seeing that you’ve already completed a pre-assessment of your class, students adore seeing how their portraits compare to their classmates, and most importantly, these glyphs can tell YOU lots of really important information about your students with a quick glance.

Here's what's included:
♦ Directions for implementation, along with helpful tips and tricks
♦ THREE glyphs: one for use with a Multiple Intelligence survey (not included, but links to free versions are listed), one for use without Multiple Intelligence survey, and one BLANK glyph so you can personalize the directions or extend the activity as desired.
♦ Hand drawn line drawings of a person, clothes, and hats for students to use with glyph directions
♦Fill-in class lists to compile your data
