I wanted to share one of my FAVORITE Back to School activities with you! Every year I LOVE creating an All About Me Project for my kiddos to work on. It makes a stunning Back to School Night bulletin board display and the parents just LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! This past year I created an All About Me Tab-Its Booklet and my kiddos LOVED it. They especially LOVED that they could choose their own child clip art that looked like them and illustrate it the way they liked. It was such a fun activity and the bulletin board display looked amazing! Check out some of our pictures below…
All About Me Tab-Its Booklet
On each of the pages of the All About Me Tab-Its booklet the students had to write different things about themselves.
- FACTS page: The students had to write their birthday, age, their best friend, what they want to be when they grow up and why they are special.
- FAVORITES page: On this page, the students got to write some of their favorite things!
- FAMILY page: The students drew a picture and wrote about their family on this page.
- FUN page: Here the students enjoyed writing and drawing three things they like to do for fun.
One of the students’ favorite parts is that they get to choose a piece of child clip art and illustrate it to look like themselves. They came out soooooo cute!
Check out the bulletin board display for our All About Me project! How CUTE do these look!!!!!
Last year we made an All About Me Lapbook. I like to change things up from year to year to keep it fresh and fun.
Here was last year’s All About Me Lapbook!
