The Best Part of Me

Such a beautiful project.  I am so proud of the students writing, so heartfelt and authentic.  The Best Part of Me, by Wendy Eswald, inspired this project.  The award winning photographer asked children "what's the best part of you?" and compiled their answers in this book alongside stunning black and white photography.  After reading the excerpts in the book, the students were ready to answer the same question.  They wrote drafts, before peer editing, and starting on their good copies.  They even helped photograph one another using an ipad.  It was a great experience for them, celebrating and sharing something personal and loveable about themselves.

Most of you had the opportunity to see the display during student led conferences in March, but here's another peek.  Each student will be taking home a class book as a keepsake.
