Awesome first week of school activity

This is mine. What do you think?
I was perusing Pinterest yesterday and found something wonderful! This art teacher had a wonderful idea and I am going to use it with my kids this year.

Here is the pin.



Click here to go to the post on her blog. She has a free download for you. I downloaded it because it has the notebook paper clipart on the page.

Procedure:
  • Discuss goal setting
  • Have your students set some goals for the year, I think I will have mine do 3
  • Students need to write the goals down with the prompt: My goals for the 2012-2013 school year are...
  • Show students your finished goal portrait
  • Demonstrate how to place the eyes and hands
  • Let students draw their own
  • Students need to copy their goals onto the small piece of notebook paper
  • We will hang ours in the hallway
Isn't that awesome? I can't wait!!!!

This is awesome! With all of the goal setting we must do, the children will enjoy this activity. Thanks for sharing! I will now politely steal this idea.
