Self-Portrait

I really like to teach the students art in my classroom.  In this day of justifying everything we do academically, I searched for ways to integrate art with curriculum. I found a great website called WritingFix.  On there they have this great lesson for creating a self-portrait pairing that with a mentor text and poetry lesson.

I have done this lesson for a couple of years and the kids really love it.  Today when I picked up my daughter today from vacation bible school, she had spent several days creating a self-portrait.  To my surprise it is the same lesson that I have used in my classroom.

Click on the picture of my beautiful daughter and it will take you to the WritingFix lesson.
