Self-portraits are a fantastic way for children to explore their sense of self and build their self-identity. I love doing self portraits at the beginning of the year with my class when we are getting to know each other. We learn about ourselves, each other and they foster a sense of belonging within the classroom.
Thank you for joining in with this activity Valentino. You certainly concentrated on looking into the mirror to see your facial features. You attempted to copy these features onto your paper really well. I look forward to seeing these features develop throughout the year and see what you look like in Term 4.
What did we learn?
Building our self identity, we develop a sense of awareness of ourselves and others. While participating in this activity we also develop a sense of belonging in the classroom, experiment with cause and effect, fine motor skills, drawing skills and practice our pencil grip.
