Use this All About Me printable journal page as part of your back-to-school introductions, as an icebreaker activity or as part of an All About Me unit.
All About Me printable journal page
This All About Me printable is perfect as a getting-to-know you activity.
You can use the printable as a journal page to encourage reading, writing, and drawing.
You can use the printable as posters to make a community display of all the children in your group.
The printable can be used as one of your morning pages, a prompt for talking in circle time, or as an introduction to a lesson on diversity.
As a teacher you could fill in the sheet and send it out ahead of back-to-school time, so your new class already knows a bit about you before the start of term.
And you can ask your children to fill in their copy of the page to bring with them at their Meet The Teacher appointment.
How to use this printable
Print the All About Me journal page (see below) on paper or card.
You can print as many as you need for your children to use in your classroom, a home, or in your community group.
Set the pages out with pens and pencils and invite your children to fill in their sheet with details all about them.
The printable is designed to offer the opportunity to read, write, and draw.
The simple prompts are ones everyone can engage with. There are no right or wrong answers, so answer what is true for you.
The prompts can be the start of conversations between you and individual children.
You can have everyone complete the sheet and then bring them to small groups or circle times to share their answers.
Perhaps one child will share their answers each day.
Older children can be tasked with completing the sheet on behalf of a classmate. This helps them develop interview techniques, listening skills, and note-taking. Then they can present their findings to the rest of the class as they introduce their friend.
The All About Me sheets are also great to use at the start of each school year or on New Year’s Eve, to build a record of how your child’s ideas and interests develop over the years.
