Give them total creative freedom when it comes to using this book. Sit down with them while they work on these First Day of School Activities but don’t guide them in their answers. This is a time when they can use this space as a way to write their thoughts, feelings, and emotions and then color it (or not) as they choose.
These pages can then be made into a book, placed on a bulletin board or they can stand in front of the class and share what they have written about themselves.
