Where can I write my own?
1. There is a Google Doc that you can make your own copy of. Make sure that you put your name in the title!!!
2. There is a Kami that you can use.
Or you can write it on paper (and decorate it).
Best ones will make it on next year's slides!!
They are both the same thing, just in different formats.
And here's the thing: you can't do it "wrong", and you don't have to write about school stuff. Be free!!
