This was perfect as my curriculum has a unit on self portraits. With k & 1st I read the story below. We talked about and practiced different faces we might make according to our mood or how we were feeling at that moment. I briefly talked about how bad drugs were, leaving most of that lesson for the guidance counselor to do. We talked about "selfies" and I demonstrated what they were by using my cell phone.
here for details on how I teach self portraits.
With my 2nd graders I wanted them to have more of a challenge. In addition to self portraits the curriculum includes communication with the community. My interpretation is for students to make posters. I also wanted them to learn about making bubble letters.
Below are rubrics for making a poster.
Also some examples of the right and wrong way to make a poster.
When I teach bubble letters I start out by lightly drawing the letters for the word and leaving some space between each letter. I call this the bones of the letter. Next we need to put some skin or a bubble over the letter and then erase the bones. Since we don't see our bones through our skin.
Again I had the students use a cell phone frame, it was smaller, leaving room for the slogan.
They were displayed on one of MY NEW Screenplex display boards.
Students were excited to see their work hanging up in the main hallway.
What are some of the slogans you have used for Red Ribbon Week?
Thanks for reading!
