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.
I would want to buy blank puzzle pieces and have each child decorate a piece or write their name, then it would be a finished puzzle! Back To School Craft and Bulletin Board Idea Could be a fun team building activity/ice breaker.
This sheet can be used as a reference for kids to use when stuck for something to write about, a fast finisher activity, a first week of school activity, or as a literacy center! Possible alternative to a heart map.
We could do this with out Frida Kahlo self-portraits--make them "selfies"! Fun, contemporary back-to-school lesson! Have your students draw "selfies" and describe their summer via text message prompts. Makes for a great bulletin board display!
