This T Shirt About Me art and writing activity is a fun, first week back to school ice breaker, popular with boys and girls alike.

It's a really creative way for both teachers and students to safely and playfully learn more about each other.

The T-shirt templates are inspired by the artist, Piet Mondrian's abstract work.

This resource includes a poster and garland to make your classroom colorful, welcoming and inspiring.

1. T-shirt ART template

There are 15 sections to illustrate responses to prompts, including: Self portrait, name, age, grade, favorite color, fruit, vegetable, sport, film, song...

Photographs of completed and partially completed examples are included for display purposes and to give direction to students who may need it.

Use a black ball point pen and colored markers to create a modern, illustrative style to appeal to slightly older children, grade 4+

2. T-shirt WRITING template

There are 15 questions / prompts to respond to in written format, including:

My top 3 goals this year, something I like at school, something I find challenging,

if I were a superhero, I can make the world better by, I feel happy when, I feel sad when, I aim to, I wonder if.....

A finished example is included

3. Also included:

T-shirt doodle pages and bookmarks for early finishers

Garlands and posters in the bold geometric style of Piet Mondrian.

UK/Aus/Can templates with 'colour' and 'favourite' spellings are included in the packet.

Size of templates:

The T-shirt templates measure approximately 22 x 18cm / 8 x 7 inches and are designed to fit US Letter and A4 paper size for printing.

Due to some feedback that the T-shirt templates are small, I have added further templates which fill the US Letter paper size to its maximum.

These T-shirts measure approximately 25 x 20cm / 10 x 8 inches

Work large!

If you have access to a larger printer, you can scale up to 11x14 or A3 depending on the paper sizes you use.

(The templates are vector files so they won't pixelate when you enlarge)

Please note, the art and writing activities have been designed to complete on separate pieces of paper, they are not formatted to be printed back to back on one sheet of paper.

Display Ideas:

The finished T-shirts make a fabulous display, on the bulletin board or pegged up on a line as a garland or 'washing line'.

You could also decorate your door or use the T-shirts for personal journal covers or to label students' lockers.
