FREE: "Book Selfie" First Day Back to School Homework Assignment - Here's a unique homework assignment that will not only help you get to know your students' names, but will offer an opportunity for peers to recommend their favorite books to their classmates in a format they love: selfies!

Assign students to take a selfie with their current favorite book (or any reading material). If they are uncomfortable taking a picture of themselves, allow them to just take the picture of the book in their favorite reading spot.

Students will write about their selfies and the book (optional handouts included). Then you can display them in the classroom so everyone can see the book recommendations (optional signs for the classroom included).

This assignment will require students to have access to a cell phone or device that can take a digital photo. You may wish to either have students share their digital file with you or print the image and turn it in. If students share the digital file, you may display the images online or print them yourself to display in the classroom.

If you teach in a 1:1 school, have students tag you on Instagram or create a hashtag on Twitter or Instagram (or any social network). You could start a #bookselfie trend!

Special thanks to my students who sent me their book selfies to use for this resource. :)
