Clip to ScrapBook #2

Oh I'd forgotten I'd done a lesson on this! Okay I'm totally going to have to redo it this year. I'm glad you reminded me of it. Mine wasn't complicated.
I have a friend who is a photographer who mentioned the book so I did a simpler version of it. At the time I taught second.
I read them The Most Important Book and they interviewed a friend in the class and wrote about what they felt was the most important quality of the other person. Then I asked them to think about what they valued about themselves. Were they good at soccer? Funny? Kind? Intelligent. Then we thought about which body part we might associate with that quality---like a foot for soccer or a tongue for telling jokes. They wrote about how that body part as a way of illustrating a quality they valued about themselves. Then I took a picture of that body part, slapped it onto their writing and put it up in the hallway.
