5/6 - Beginning of year Perspective Name study Students measured a space to create bubble letters for their name. Then they used a vanishing point to put the name in perspective. A finishing touch was the students' "favorite something" illustrated in the background.
Instead of describing self, make the cloud "What I want in a friend" and then find friends looking for similar attributes. Extend the activity by doing the (bubble letter) name art and using adjectives to describe self, http://iwanttobeasuperteacher.blogspot.com/2012/06/grammatical-name-art.html#comment-form
