Activity Overview


Reading books aloud is an integral part of classroom learning. Not only do read alouds model fluency and expression, they also invite discussion, questions, and connections, and opinions. Children of all ages love listening to stories, and the beginning of the school year is a perfect time to start this classroom routine.

For this activity, the students will listen to the book The Best Part of Me by Wendy Ewald. It is an excellent book to help build a positive classroom environment where students embrace each other’s differences. Then, the students will choose the part of themselves that they would like to share, and create a cell that illustrates and describes that part the way the children did in the story. This activity shows how each student is unique, and encourages children to share what they think is special about themselves.
