Back to School Best Resources

Hi everyone,

It's time to start thinking about fun ways to start the upcoming school year off right.  I'll be sharing some useful tips and activities in the upcoming weeks.  One of my absolute favourite things to do the first week is to have students create a self-portrait.  We begin by tracing our hands and feet on large paper.  I often starts with two 11 X 17 inch pieces taped together.

I then have students fill in their faces and bodies.  We then begin writing about ourselves or our hopes and dreams for the upcoming school year.  The portraits are hung in the hallway.  Written pieces are displayed under each portrait.
