Portrait of a First Grader

First graders were very excited to draw portraits of themselves. We talked about why a self-portrait is different from a regular portrait and learned the proper placement of the eyes, nose, and mouth. We talked about what makes us look unique and different from each other and the children were encouraged to add those details into their portraits'.


When they were finished with the coloring, each child was asked what they hoped to learn or achieve in the year ahead. Below are their self-portraits that they created along with their hopes and dreams of what they want to accomplish in first grade!
