YW- activity- Website where students can upload photos of themselves and fill it with words about themselves and their interests! As of the website was not allowing people to make their own, but promised it would be ready soon.
Incorporate art into writing (poetry): Students can even pick a page from their favourite book as an inspiration. Book page poetry is really neat and a great way to show creativity with older kids. This is an interesting way to teach poetry.
