WHO Do You Want to Be?

Hello!
Phew! We did it - we survived the first week back!
This was probably my smoothest week-after-Christmas-vacation ever. My kiddos were quiet (probably tired from staying up past their "school-approved bed time over break) and worked diligently as we transitioned back into the school zone.

My favorite activity we did this week was:
WHO Do You Want to Be in 2015?
So many times my students are asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" And more than any other class, these students just don't know. I find that the question really stresses them out. So, I decided to take a different approach.
My favorite activity of the week focused in on WHO the students want to be, not only what.
I showed them my example:
And then I gave them time to brainstorm adjectives that they would want to describe them:
They did a phenomenal job - and it was so motivating as they considered how they want to be known by others and how they can serve God with their attitudes.
I am linking up this idea with my buddy, Joanne, for her 
It was simple to prepare for, easy for the kids to complete, and oh-so-meaningful!
