    Open House Ideas
    By Amy Lee

    Clip to ScrapBook

    I like the previous ideas. My idea is similar to the other ideas. The magazine Really Good Stuff has a project called "Spotlight on Me." Students illustrate themselves on the front and on the second attached sheet fill in information such as favorite animal, book, movie, food, etc. I made my own forms and what I like to do for open house is to have parents try to figure which one is their child by their self portraits. They are surprise to read the bio. information and what their children like. Also before I post them I don't look at them while the students are working on them and I mix them up. Then I try to match the portraits with the biographical information. The students get a kick out how I struggle to make matches. I plan on this year having the students do the activity at the end of year. I am curious to see how their illustrations change and what they like change as well. A few students want to illustrate what they wish they look like. As long as it is not inappropriate I let them do it.
