The Best Part of Me : Children Talk about Their Bodies in Pictures and Words
I first wrote about this poetry project for Scholastic nearly ten years ago, and in that time, it has become more important than ever to help children have positive self-images of their bodies and abilities. From roadside billboards to magazines at the grocery checkout, children are constantly exposed to digitally altered images of models and athletes. Research shows that these types of images can negatively influence a child's body image by age six, which I can readily believe because I have, at times, heard my 3rd graders discussing "wanting to lose weight. Next, using methodology that later evolved into her Literacy Through Photography writing project, she had the students write descriptive poems about their favorite part. With all of my students gathered on the carpet around me last week, I pulled out a hand mirror and just started staring at myself, smiling. Finally, amid some giggles, one of my little girls asked why I was doing that.
One of the ways to help build our students up is to help them see themselves and their classmates in a positive light. The couple that I chose to read worked out well and my students enjoyed them. I love how the black and white photos turned out and it looks so great having the best part of all my students on a beautiful bulletin board display for everyone to see!
