This is a great activity to do during the first week of school. There are several ways for differentiation and also a few different fun ways to use this book to help students get to know each other a little more during that first week. All About Me FoldAStory can also be used at a writing center during the first few months of school. What I love most about this book is that it is completely student made with little to no prep on the teacher’s part.
