As an introductory activity, I have my students create their own ceiling posters. On their poster, they draw whatever says something about themselves. They include personal photos, cutouts from magazines and anything that reflects who they are. Each student introduces their poster about themselves to their fellow classmates. I make a big deal out of taping their posters to the ceiling tiles in the classroom. To sweeten the pot, I take digital photos of each student and give him or her a copy to incorporate into their poster. I also use the digital photos as screensavers for my class computer and use them as flashcards to help me to learn their names faster. The ceiling posters make a very colorful room with a lot of interest and creativity.
