Are you looking for a way to increase parent engagement
at the beginning of the school year?
I have a great resource for you!

This activity is also perfect for parent involvement. It sets the tone right away that you want the kids to talk about what they are learning in school with their families. The kids just get really excited that their parents have "homework", too. Ha!
I like to give my students a few days to complete their research and parent interviews. Afterwards, we share what we learned with each other during a family meeting. (Yes, I share about where my name came from, too!)
I have found it to be a great activity to promote self-acceptance, to get to know each other better, and to embrace your “story” that makes you YOU. If you would like to download this activity for FREE to use in your own classroom, click on the picture below. I hope you love it as much as I do!
