What is it?
Draw a variety of shapes on the board and have participants copy them in any order/size that feels right to them. Which shape do they connect with most right now? Why? Provide an opportunity for students to share if they want. Teachers are encouraged to participate as well. Optional music integration: play a song and limit this activity to the length of the song.
Why use it?
It gives students an opportunity to check in with themselves and gives teachers a glimpse into students’ lives if they choose to share.
