This is one of my favorite activities that I’ve done with my students. This is a writing prompt for you as a teacher to get to know your students a little better. You can do many of these throughout the year. Sometimes I try and set the mood for what they want me to know. Something happy, sad, mad, etc. Sometimes let them pick. It’s amazing how honest and surprising their writing will be. This is a truly inspiring activity to really get to know your kids. Don’t forget to do one yourself. Your students need to know about their teacher as well.
