Anatomy of a Student

My students always seem to enjoy labeling parts of things. This activity provides plenty of practice labeling parts of "students" (including themselves). The packet contains images of 6 different/diverse "students". Each has a Word Bank labeling parts of their body/clothing. There are worksheets for your students that allow practice cutting and gluing on the label, or filling in the blank where the initial sound has been provided, or they could use a regular fill in the blank sheet. Each "student" also has a Write to Describe page. You can choose between sentence strips to ease young writers along, or blank lines for your more confident writers.
Lastly there are blank pages for your students to draw themselves, label the parts and write to describe the picture they drew. A word bank is provided to assist students with labeling and writing. The word bank can be cut apart to provide young writers with the words to label their parts. There are spaces to add new words if needed. I think these self-portrait pages would make a GREAT class book for students to read over and over again!
This is a great back to school activity that takes into account various learning levels.
To learn more and get a copy for your class, head on over to my Teachers Notebook Shop!

Hi Angelia,
The graphics are from Whimsy Doodles. ;-)
Aren't they adorable?
