The Photo Autobiography makes a great "homefun" project to start the school year. The students use photographs to describe themselves on a poster, PPT, etc., and use the autobiography to introduce themselves to the class. Make sure you create an example, and use it to introduce yourself the first day of school!
The attachment is a 1 page student handout that includes directions, a checklist, and a simple scoring rubric.
A great way to begin building classroom community in any grade!
