Back to School is coming up faster than we realize, so I wanted to give you a few ideas (including a FREE DOWNLOAD) that you can set aside NOW so that you're not scrambling at the last minute looking for something new and fun to do with your students!

Six tabs provide information for your Preschool, Kindergarten, or First Grade littles to share about themselves while incorporating beginning writing practice at the same time. 
Let me show you  a closer look!
There are actually six different covers that you can choose from for this activity. There are ten different characters for your kiddos to pick from. 5 girls and 5 boys. Encourage them to find the one that most resembles them. They can improvise if needed (add glasses, or whatnot).
I had my five year old (who will be entering Kindergarten this fall) make a sample so that you can see the steps students need to take to complete this project. 
Start by having them pick a cover and color it. 
Then they can grab a pencil and fill out the beginner writing portions of all the pages included. The first page has the "All About" and "Favorites" tabs. Her favorite food is (believe it or not) "Robin Noodles".... Ramen Noodles (bleh!).




The next page encourages students to write about something they dislikes. My daughter is a sensitive soul and greatly dislikes when people are mean or use a harsh tone with her.


Next, students will draw a self portrait.


Then they will write out what dreams they have. I like this Big Dream! That's a big green dinosaur she drew.


Finally, they write 5 reasons why they are unique.

Time to cut it all out! Simple cutting and easy assembly allows for all students to happily succeed.
Throw some math in there, and have your students practice measuring by laying out the tabs from shortest to tallest!
Then glue the tabs together to make a flip book!
Now your students can take turns reading their flip books to their peers before taking hanging them up in the hallway!

    1. That is correct! The post advertises that a FREE DOWNLOAD is included as a bonus to all of the All About Me activities given. So sorry if you have no need for the Student Info Sheets, but hopefully some of the ideas shared will still be helpful in planning your Back to School activities!
