At the top of your paper write:
Your Name & Connection Number 6a-## or 6b-##
Introduction: WHAT'S YOUR STORY?: I would like to get to know you by having you write a short paper about yourself.
This is a short one page story that you will write about your life. I really want it to be an interesting read so please tell lots of interesting stories. I would like to know three sides of your life. You can pick from some of the following or make up your own "sides" or aspect:
Here is a list:
Significance of your Name (Why and the story behind your name)
Birthplace (Where and why that is significant)
WoW Factor (a fact about you that might make us all say Wow and the story behind it)
Fact(s) (are there facts about you that really explain who you are or tell a story?)
Education (Schools you have attended and what that is unusual or a special story)
Family (members and how you relate to each one)
Childhood (What happened when you were young?)
Pets (what is unique about your pet(s))
Sports (you have played and the story behind each sport)
Hobbies (things you love to do in your spare time... friends, social media, art, etc...)
Goals (things you really want out of your life now and in the future and why)
Technology (devices you can't life without and why)
Dreams (things you would love to do in life - similar to goals)
Books (significant books that have shaped your thinking)
Vacations (far off places that have shaped who you are or are just plain fun and interesting)
Food (talk about your favorite food, why you like it and a special occasion or memory dealing with that food)
Tragedies (what happened and what you learned from it)
Injury (what was the injury and how did it occur)
Fear (do you have a fear and talk about an occasion where that fear was made real)
Talents (drawing, music, sports, etc...) something you are born naturally with the ability to do
Collections (What are some of the unique collections you have and how is this interesting?)
Careers (What is a unique career you are interested in and why?)
Achievements (What have you done that you were recognized for and how did it all occur)
Skill (math, basketball) something you have worked very hard to develop
Can you think of others? (send me a note and if it is good, I will have a treat for you)
Remember you are writing 3 paragraphs on 3 different sides of your life and also remember to write about your life as a story. Don't just share lots of facts and miss the story part behind the facts.
Create a clear beginning and good ending. Make sure the opening sentence captures the audience's attention.
Be sure to introduce yourself at the beginning somewhere!
I am honored to serve as your child's teacher for the next 5 months and I am looking for ways to connect with them. For this reason, I am asking your child to give me a written profile of him/herself, and I’d like to invite you to participate if you would like by writing me a short paragraph about your child. Knowing how each student sees him/herself helps me to better serve his/her needs, and additional insights from you will help me understand more about your child so I can serve them better.
How would you describe your son or daughter as a person? As a thinker or learner? As a student? As a reader and a writer?
Are there certain activities, sports, careers or causes that he or she is passionate about?
Finally, what are their biggest fears and challenges right now? What big events are coming up in the next six months for them?
Thank you so much for taking the time to share this information and I will closely guard what is written. On the same note, please do not share information that is too personal that you would not like me to know. (* I tell this to the students as well)
