We have officially started our self portrait project, which is part of our science/social studies unit, All About Me.
Students have watched a video of last year's project, listened to books related to this theme, and are now ready to begin creating a beautiful self portrait that will hang in our classroom all school year! These will be completed by the Open House on October 3rd. I will continue to take photos as our artwork takes shape!
Soon, we will begin a collaborative project using iPads to compare ourselves to one another and to recognize our similarities and differences. I am eager to begin this part of the unit, as I love teaching with technology and helping students discover how technology can be used in many ways--not just to play games.
