We did this at the beginning of the year and it was exciting to see the transformation of our son’s drawing skills! This is great for both families to do at home and teachers to do with their classes! Materials Cardstock (we used white) Printer Pencil crayons Pencil/ eraser Photo of your child at the end of the school year Photo safe glue, tape or photo corners Printout of Photo & Drawing Sheet drawing_and_photo_of_me Directions Here is our photo and drawing from the first day of school. We wanted to see how much our son’s drawing skills had changed. Print out the Photo & Drawing Sheet on your cardstock. Have your child sketch out a drawing of themselves with pencil and then colour it in. We used pencil crayons, but you could use other materials as well. Attach your photo to the other side. (Or you could do this before as our son wanted to do.) Add the Grade and the Year in the provided space. Put in a keepsake box or punch holes and store in a binder, beside your piece from the beginning of the year. Repeat this each year for a continuum of your child’s growth. Purpose Recording your chid’s growth. Showing progress within a year. Safety Notes Use photo safe adhesive for your project. Depending on your child’s age and abilities, you may want to cover the work surface with a table cloth, sheet of paper or put the activity sheet on a craft tray.
