I took this photo at our school today. Our students created life-size self-portaits. What I LOVED about this project was the wonderful twists and self-reflection. First, the students were not linear in their thinking and rather than lie flat and trace their bodies, they chose action poses. Next, they drew pictures within their body outline of things that they connected with. Some drew soccer balls, others showed math problems. It was an AMAZING assignment.
Today, 118 days ’til 40, I took a moment to pause and appreciate the creativity of our students and teachers. What a gift!
