Kids create a piece of visual art to describe themselves using suitable adjectives.
Brainstorm words that kids can use to describe themselves (physical, personality traits, abilities etc.), write difficult spellings on the board.
Distribute magazines and newspapers, ask kids to cut out words and/or individual letters to form words they would like to use.
Kids also draw and colour their own name on plain paper and cut this out.
Glue name in centre of black card, surrounded by describing words.
Show and tell.
Why did you choose those words?
Were there any others you thought of but didn’t use?
