The Write Stuff


Brains, growth mindset, learning, passion projects! Our brains are pretty powerful! Teach students to be aware of their "smarts" by using this brain activity at the beginning of the year and then at the end of the year. It's a great way to get to know you students and see the way they think.

It also makes a fabulous bulletin board display for Meet the Teacher night!

Updated September 2020 with new pages and ideas!

Brain Ideas:

  • Students cut along the lines of the brain to create flaps for the bottom where they have identified and colored their strong qualities and talents.
  • My Brain books - teach students about their brain with your own information
  • Subject based "Brain Booklets" to showcase learning
  • Left and Right Hemisphere booklets. Use with your own lessons. (Video suggestion to help guide you.

This product does not teach the actual areas of the brain but is meant more as an initial fun activity to get your students thinking about self assessing the way they think and for your open-ended ideas.

About 10 pages - 17 pages with alternate ways to support all your students.
