Self-portrait hand prints – A fantastic art & writing activity for kids of all ages! Students write about their year then decorate their hand print & border with patterns and the background with their writing.

"School Year Selfie" bulletin board: Students write about a favorite moment from their school year and then draw a picture of themselves in that moment. Also a good opportunity to teach them the term "self portrait"!
A fun graphic organizer for students to share lots of information about themselves. A great start of school year activity to be displayed in your classroom. Or simply have students create it so you can collect it and learn about them.
