I like to start the year off with the students looking at their own strengths and weaknesses as a learner. I have them brainstorm all of the things they see as areas where they excel, and then those areas that need improvement. After writing paragraphs, the students then create this fun little display resembling body builders lifting weights! Come on over to my blog to see exactly how I get the students to think about themselves as learners, and pick up your free printables and rubrics to complete this first week of school project!
