On the first day of my Media and Digital Literacy, we were welcomed into the class by making LEGO people to represent ourselves. This was a fun way to start the class and to have an insight as to what we would be doing this year. There were some limited character pieces that represented me as a person. I chose the dark ponytailed hair because my hair is dark brown and I often wear it in a ponytail. I chose a striped shirt because after thinking about my wardrobe, it consists of many striped shirts. The blue bottoms represent the jeans that I wear almost every day. I put myself on a little diving board for a couple of reasons. In a practical sense, I LOVE to swim! In a more theoretical sense, I am diving head first into being a Faculty of Education student on my way into my teaching career.

You’re so clever with your LEGO person! You’ve surely dove straight into this year! Great work!!
So happy to read this post! I’m going to link it to my blog about my first day ‘Happiness in Teaching’ [https://fiveflames4learning.com/2018/09/07/happiness-in-teaching/] since it’s the other side of this conversation. Metaphors and lego people make a great start to teaching! Keep writing and reflecting as you dive into this year! Looking forward to may more creative makes with this medium!
