Today's freebie is a GREAT back-to-school activity. I used it in my class on the first day of school last year. I orginally made this lesson for my SMARTboard, but I copied the slides and made it into a PDF for you. Because the original slides were in color (and I couldn't remove the background when I copied the slides), some of the instruction sheets would work best displayed on the ELMO or document camera. I'm not sure how well they will photocopy. This activity can be done at any time during the school year, but I like it at the beginning for a variety of reasons:
- the students are giving you valuable information about their likes, dislikes, hobbies
- the teacher can get a sneak peek of students' writing and math abilities
- the finished products make a FANTASTIC back-to-school bulletin board display.
I even wrote my own 100% Me! poem to share with my students ... so here you go ...
9% stressed-out mom,
It all adds up entirely,
to makes up 100% me!
