Ask your students to draw themselves using the template on the following page, then help them cut out their drawings. When you have collected a drawing of each student in your class, arrange them like a wreath and glue them together. Hang the wreath in the classroom or on your door for everyone to see.
This is a great activity for getting to know each other, and for creating a classroom community. The visual presented by your class wreath will remind all of the members of your class that they are all necessary and vital to the classroom community.
The other pages included in this set can be used to create a class book, compiling all of your students’ answers to these welcome back prompts. These pages could also be used as portfolio pages showcasing students’ writing level at the beginning of the school year. The youngest students can dictate their answers for great storytelling practice. This product is also available as part of my Back to School Math and Language Bundle
