Age of empires 2 download freefreeband. Cultivating a postive classroom community is such an important part of teaching, and I’ve learned that little things go a long way. One of the ways to help build our students up is to help them see themselves (and their classmates) in a positive light. One of the ways I did that this year was by doing an activity all about “The Best Part of Me.”

I’ve mentioned my sweet friend LeAnn several times, because she is a constant source of inspiration! When I visited her classroom a while back (we teach at different schools), I saw her students’ adorable “Best Part of Me” pictures and writings. I knew I had to do it with my kiddos!
The original lesson is from Genia Connell on Scholastic’s website. {here} The mentor text for this activity is The Best Part of Me by Wendy Ewald.

I love the idea of the book and that the author went into 3rd-5th grade classrooms and the pictures were great inspirations for my students to start thinking about the best part of them and to understand what their final product was going to look like. I guess I just thought there would be a lot more poems to pick from, but the book didn’t have as many as I thought it would! The couple that I chose to read worked out well and my students enjoyed them.

I love how the black and white photos turned out and it looks so great having the best part of all my students on a beautiful bulletin board display for everyone to see! I’m hoping to make a class book with all the poems so that I can use them next year when I am teaching the lesson!

Using two different styles of English really defines the characters in the short story. It helps show the “lesson” in a way of student and teacher. Sylvia is the student that uses AAVE while the teacher, Miss Moore, uses SAE. Miss Moore is trying to teach Sylvia that though she is underprivileged she can still amount to something.
