My students brainstormed a list of ten traits they thought best described them, then they typed their list out in Word on laptops. I let them choose the fonts and colors they wanted and then students printed them. It took each student about 15 minutes from start to print so depending on how much access you have to computers, you might even be able to do these in small groups or as part of a center. I think your students would also have fun writing the words in different color markers, making different "fonts" by hand. Hope this helps! Genia
