2nd Grade Stamped Self Portraits


Have you always wondered what 2nd graders look like? WELL wonder no more because here they are. . . some truly supurb 2nd-almost-3rd graders:


Students got to explore their own faces for this self-portrait project. They peered into mirrors (and made quite a few infinity tunnels) to study the shape and proportions of their faces. They used the ol’ Dip n’ Stamp method to get the big bold black outlines.


Some classes used tempera cakes to paint and others used crayons to color. . .


This one reminds me ofย THIS.

This one actually looks EXACTLY LIKE the student who made it in a really weird and accurate way:


This girl really does have blue bangs (but not lips or eyes):


Those teeth. . .


Wink! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Spiderman Ninja with a bicycle in the background:

This one is also super accurate and looks just like the kid:




Frankenstein in a city with bats at night:

The shirt says it all. . . hehehe:



And did you know that a Timenado is a tornado that takes you back in time? This illuminating peice of information was revealed to me by a particularly imaginative 2nd grader. It sparked a great meta-philosophical debate about time travel which is already an interesting topic but hearing 7-year-olds talk about it is a whole ‘nother story. Heres hoping the last 11 days of school are filled with more imagination and randomness!
