In our “Here I Am” activity your students will write their name and draw a portrait of themselves each month. This way their handwriting and drawing skills are charted each month. For the name, they work on writing a capital letter first and then lowercase letters. Also, being able to keep their letters within the appropriate space provided shows monthly progress throughout the year. Another skill that is addressed throughout this activity is listening skills and following directions. As for their portrait, it is a cute way to see how they see themselves and as the month’s progress what details they added to their drawings. At the end of the year they take home an adorable book created by them showing their handwriting and drawing growth.
