The Best Part of Me!

Last week I did a story unit with the book The Best Part of Me. Have any of you used this book in your classroom of therapy sessions? This book is written by 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. In the book, they each include a photo, write about the best part of themselves, and explain why that is the best part. When I first heard about the book I was so excited to re-create it with my students. My students really got excited about this activity. It got their expressive language really flowing! Check out what we did to go along with the book:
First we brainstormed and made a list about what was great about certain parts of our body. 
Then each child picked the best part of themselves. I took a photo of the part they chose and they each wrote about it. This activity makes a great display, too!
What's the best part of you?
