I'm always on the hunt for a first week activity that lets me know a little bit about my students without putting them on the spot. Because what's more intimidating than having to come up with something interesting about yourself on the spot in front of a whole class, right?!?! I gave each student a paper divided into eight sections with a circle in the middle. They were directed to put their name in the center circle and then through numbers tell me a little bit about themselves. Here's the…

Thumbprint Self-Portrait | TeachKidsArt   Kids made this based on their real thumbprint. Then fill it in with a narrative about themselves! Writing, Middle School Art, Teaching, Pre K, Art Lessons, Elementary Art, Therapy Activities, Teaching Art, Tekenen

Here's a great idea I spotted on Pinterest.... I tried this lesson with my middle school students and they had so much fun with it! I originally used a copy machine to enlarge students' fingerprints.

Hello, friends! I have created a lesson for my students and any kiddos who wish to create titled Behind My Mask! When my students return in the fall (and, yes, I said 'when' as I am very hopeful and optimistic), they will be asked to mask-up. We always seem to start out school year with a selfie so I was bummed when I thought of the idea of my students drawing themselves with their best facial feature hidden. And that's where the idea of this surprise drawing came from. Here's a video! Feel…
