This gave me an idea for one of my favorite quotes: Take a picture of hands in family and hang under the quote: "Un homme est qu'il a fait, par ses mains voyons sa coeur." ( A man is what he has done, by his hands we see his heart.) -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Best Part of Me Project. Read the book "The Best Part of Me." Have students pick their favorite body part and write a descriptive paragraph or poem. No guidelines, no rubric. Take a black and white photo and zoom in on their part. Place writing piece and photo on black and white scrapbook paper. Perfect for a bulletin board!

Paragraph Reminder~ This is great for students who are beginning to write multi-paragraph narratives or essays. Simple, clear, and helpful!
