~ When all the pages are completed, punch 3 holes along the edge of all the papers and tie yarn through all the holes in the pages to make a book.

A great way for children to share something about themselves (and to boost their self confidence) is to send home a lunch bag with the following note
stapled to it:
All About Me Bag ,As part of our theme "all about me," we would like to welcome the children to share things about themselves with their classmates. Find 3-5 things that represent your child and place them in the bag. Some ideas may include an object that is their favorite color, or a label/package from their favorite food, or something they may collect. Please make sure it fits in the bag! We will be sharing these bags with the other children during group this week. You may bring them in any day this week! We look forward to learning more about your child!

Grab These Great All About Me Posters from Oriental Trading Company and send them home for your Students to fill out and bring back to display in the hallway! Best part is you get 30 posters for only $8.00

Provide each child with a cut out like below made from Poster Board. Have them decorate it at home to represent themselves. They can use whatever they would like such as fabric for clothes, yarn for hair etc. These come out so cute! Hang them around the room or in the hall and let the other children guess who is who.

My Special Face

When I look in a mirror I see my face,
And all of its parts are in their place.
I see two little ears and one little nose,
I see two little eyes and one little mouth.
When I look in the mirror, what do I see?

A wonderful and special me! (Give yourself a hug!)
