“All About Me” Pictures: Ask your new students if they’ve ever heard the expression “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Discuss what it means and then tell students that instead of using words to tell about themselves, they will be creating posters to let pictures do the talking. Give each child a sheet of poster board, and set up worktables with lots of art supplies as well as magazines to cut. Invite children to fill their poster board with pictures that say something about themselves—for example, images that represent favorite foods, sports they enjoy, pets they have, places they like, and so on. Let children take turns sharing their posters, letting classmates look at the pictures and make guesses about their interests. —Natalie V., Encinitas, CA
