The first week of school is always a crazy one. Lots of things to do and get done. However making sure to create a welcoming classroom community is one of the most important.
I have created these simple All about me books to use as a first week of school assignment. You can do them in class or you can send them home. There are direction pages included for each page of the book.
The pages are small and I have left room at the top of each page to insert a coil in order to make them into small little flip books.
I place them in our classroom library after everyone presents them at the end of the first week of school.
The students take a lot of pride in creating these and they really enjoy sharing them and learning about their fellow classmates.
