Every year for Mother's Day it has been our tradition to make a silhouette of each student to give to his/her mother. A couple of years ago, a teacher on my team came up with an easy way to do them! No more using the projector and having the student sit still while you trace around his/her head!
Now all we do, is have the student stand in front of a wall/easel/Promethean board, and quickly snap his/her profile with a digital camera! Check it to make sure it looks good, then print it, cut it on black paper and mount on a white piece of paper! So simple!
We also have the students make something to go along with the silhouette since it is mostly teacher created. The moms LOVE them! I can't imagine not doing them! I'm not from the area that I teach in, but my mom still has my Kindergarten silhouette!
