What to Do

1 | First, prepare a printed photo of each student. Have students use paper clips to affix clear sheet protectors over their photos and trim the edges of the clear sheet, if necessary.

2 | Ask students to use markers and stickers to decorate their sheet protectors. Emphasize that the drawings and stickers should represent their interests.

3 | Pass out additional sheets, and have students create more stories about themselves to share.
