The Things That Make Me

There are also great prizes for the Grand-Prize winning student and
teacher and the three First-Place winning students and teachers!

  • Share Your Flaunts! Have 4th grade students share their essays/poems and art work with 3rd graders. Or host a “Flaunt It” Day for families to join the class, where parents and siblings enjoy the students’ work and have the opportunity to celebrate their own visible or invisible differences. Teachers can also join as mentors in sharing a personal story.
  • Holiday Creations: In the winter, remind students that just like a snowflake, each of us is one-of-a-kind. Have the students make their own snowflake accompanied by a word or sentence celebrating what makes them unique. For Valentine’s Day, encourage students to create in-class Valentines, one for themselves and/or one to each other celebrating something different about that person.
  • Art Activities: Students create a self-portrait or personality-inspired artwork about one part of themselves they wish to flaunt (draw, paint, collage, pastels, origami, glued popsicle sticks, etc).
