Great ways to encourage and connect with your kids on a different level. Kids respond very well to encouragement, especially early in life. The more you encourage them, the more confident they will be in who they are.
We could do this with out Frida Kahlo self-portraits--make them "selfies"! Fun, contemporary back-to-school lesson! Have your students draw "selfies" and describe their summer via text message prompts. Makes for a great bulletin board display!
