This is a project we started on Friday, and finished today.
I took a close-up photo of each child's face, and then put a piece of tracing paper over it. Each student traced over their photo, making sure to ONLY outline, not do any filling in. This is trickier than it seems!
Then they each picked their favorite color for a frame, and wrote their names in large letters. We brainstormed a bunch of adjectives that they could use to describe themselves. This sweet group listed words like huggable, squeezable, cuddly, happy, helpful, and funny. Yep, that about says it.
