Their pictures were awesome. They also had to label the people in the pictures. I wrote any words they wanted up for them to help.
|This one surprised me but I've followed up and it's accurate. (Although I believe an aunt and two cousins also live in the apartment.)|
|This one cracked me up with how tiny the people are.|
|These are pretty well-drawn bodies from a six-year-old.|
|Originally this picture only had my student and his brother (who was in my class last year). I sent the boy back to add the adults who live in his home!|
|Another one that made me laugh. All that space and the tiny people and tiny labels.|
|One of the things that fascinated me was the different ways students drew people. Some had so many details and some were more basic. I learned a lot from this.|
It's so easy in a first grade classroom to feel like one is on a hamster wheel, just going, going, going. I love what I see and learn when I slow down to watch and listen.
