It's that time again....time for another Bright Idea.
We officially have only 10 school days left so I am thinking about student gifts for the end of the year. I usually give my students a little something from me, but this year I wanted to try something different. This year my students are going to create gifts for each other (with a little help from me).
Here is what we are doing. I have each student's name written on a piece of paper. I call one student back to my table at a time and ask them to tell me a word that describes each student such as "funny", "nice", "friendly", etc.
Once I have compiled all the names and adjectives, I create a poster with the student's name in the middle and all their adjectives surrounding the name.
Here is what the completed project will look like:
I plan on sending these home with a note explaining the poster for the parents. As a parent, I would love to see my children's classmates think about them. I think it something that the students and parents will really treasure.
For older students, the students could just write their own ideas on each person's paper, but since I teach kindergarten I thought it would be easiest to write the words that the students dictate to me. :)
