    Hi. I also teach 2nd grade. I always have the children do a self portrait. It is the shape of a head, neck and shoulders. They have to do the front and their back. They copy the clothing they have on that day. I have to remind them that the back doesn't have any eyes, etc. I don't have them put their names on it. I hang them up the afternoon of our open house and it's so much fun when the parents come and and try to figure out which on is their child. The kids enjoy this even more. Also I put up a writing piece that the children have written about themselves, likes, dislikes, favorites, etc. Again some of the parents are surprised. I also use the overhead to go over the expectations and benchmarks for the grade level. Need anymore e- mail me.
