PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FREE "I Am" Poem - Beginning of the Year or End of the Year Writing Activity. Get to know your students at the beginning of the year with this fun writing activity. Younger students can fill in with words. I have my middle school students try to put a phrase in the first line, such as "I am the pen that is mightier than the sword," developing metaphors with the ideas. My students, even my special needs children, had a great time with this. We also did this in conjunction with reading a nonfiction article about Malala Yousafzai, the girl who was shot by the Taliban. Many children of the world held up signs saying, "I am Malala." and we discussed how the pen can be mightier than the sword. Then we watched her speech to the U.N. It was a very powerful activity. Younger students can color the "I Am" and draw a "self portrait" underneath. Hang on to the poems, and then have your students write another I Am poem at the end of the year and see if anything has changed.
Have a great year!
