Today was an off schedule day for us. Our students only had a half day and we had professional development for the rest of the afternoon.
The children completed their December self portraits today. We do a self portrait every month so we can see the progression of their drawing, coloring, and writing.
This child is working on her border that goes around her self portrait. Children are encouraged to use pictures that represent the month and they can make any pattern they want. :)
We also ask them to color the pictures at the top. Even though they are small pictures, we are trying to encourage them to use several colors and not just scribble one color from top to bottom.
Here is a completed self portrait with the question answered at the bottom. This child wants a computer for Christmas! Us too!! Haha!
We are continuing our Random Acts of Kindness this week and are giving you another free item today. We are giving you the December self portrait template! There are two different versions included, one is Christmas themed and the other is winter themed. We also sell self portraits for every month of the school year in our store.
