Inside My Head: an activity for kids...for teaching schema/beginning of the year activity

This back-to-school project begins as a craftivity/bulletin board display, and then turns into an end-of-year memory book! With several social media and tech terms, the majority of students will find this activity to be very engaging!

IDEA: "My students last year loved having whole class journals to write in. They had a chance to write in them during Work on Writing, and a chance to read them during Read to Self. I made up a new set of 8. At the moment they are pretty plain covers, but once a student writes in it they have the option of choosing a sticker from my collection to place on the front cover. The stickers show me how many kids have tackled each topic."
