This activity is best made into a book and sent home as a keepsake for parents at the end of the year. Excellent used as an independent center, students write their name and draw a self-portrait each months. It is the perfect way to show the progression of their writing and drawing abilities throughout the year, and a wonderful keepsake for parents. Each month features a themed font corresponding with holidays/seasons. I personally printed a picture of each child on a page stating ___'s year in ____ filling in the name/grade, laminated, and sent home with each child at the end of the year.
