This is a great beginning of the year writing activity! It is a short and sweet lesson I do with my kiddos. The point of the lesson is to talk about loving yourself and be proud of who you are.
I read the book to the students and then we talk about what part of them they think is the best. They brainstorm ideas and pick one.
They then use the "hamburger" writing method to write a paragraph about the best part of them.
