Engage your students with this fun print-and-go craft and bulletin board display that asks the students to brainstorm WHO they want to be in the upcoming year. Encourage a growth-mindset as they think about positive character traits they hope to exhibit in 2019.
So many times my students are asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" And more than any other class, these students just don't know. I find that the question really stresses them out. So, I decided to take a different approach. I created an activity that focused in on WHO the students want to be, not only what.
Give each student a body template (I’ve included multiple templates for you to choose from)
Show the students the list of positive character traits (or brainstorm a list as a class)
Have each student fill out their “body” with different positive character traits that they want to exhibit in the coming year
Instruct each student to draw/color the face and cut out the entire body to turn in.
Display the students on a bulletin board with the title “WHO do you want to be in 2019?”
*Multiple body templates to choose from (2 to a page for paper-saving printing)
*Suggested list of positive character traits
Looking for a fun way to reconnect with your students after a holiday break? Well, look no further - this writing activity is the just-right thing for you! This writing prompt asks students to share about their vacations in a succinct way - and gives them practice with the writing process.
