Today, we used adjectives to describe ourselves! First, I had the students use their white boards to brainstorm 7 adjectives. This allowed me to quickly fix their spelling as well as correct any words that weren't actually adjectives. Then, they made this project (copied their adjectives onto small pieces of white paper, drew/cut themselves out, and wrote their name at the top):
Student self-portraits using watercolor are a great first week of school activity. It's also a fun project to repeat at the end of the school year. Read all about how to use this fun idea in the classroom.
Mixed Media Self Portrait. These were awesome. Little kids did the backgrounds, came up with words that described them and added it on top on canvas boards. Big wow factor for the parents. What an awesome idea!!
