Do you realize that children LOVE creating anything that has a picture of themself? I do TONS of projects, books, writing, etc. that feature my students’ pictures. I am fortunate that my school computer is wirelessly connected to the photocopier, so I can send pictures of my students (any size needed) directly there and don’t need to use my own printer ink. If you don’t have that capability, you can still do PHOTO projects with your students, it just might take a couple extra steps (for example, when you get a picture of each student developed, take the time to make photocopies of them in different sizes for projects like this).
The other thing young children LOVE this time of year is anything to do with monsters.
This freebie I have for you is a fun Frankenstein poem and a photo project that transforms photocopies of student heads into Frankenstein which will be a page in a class monster book:
This is simply a black and white paper copy of a 5×7 (you might need 8×10 depending on how close the child’s face is in the picture, cut out and colored with a green crayon. The child fills his or her name in the blanks based on the poem (also a printable included in this freebie) to make a page of a class book that can be covered with the page below (included as well!).
