This All About Me poster is great for a first day of school activity. I like to use it to get to know the kids. The blank white space on the left is for pictures. The kids can either draw themselves on the first day of school or you can take a picture and mount it there. After these are all filled in and colored to your students liking and the pictures are mounted, you can glue them on a 9x12 piece of construction paper, laminate and have a great bulletin board display for Back to School night that showcases all the children in your class.
This also is a great thing to keep in their portfolio. I like to use it as the cover of their "End of the Year Book" that we make for Open House that shows all the outstanding work they have done over the year.
