Alpha Autobiographies is a great activity that has your students think of something for each letter of the alphabet that represents something about them. Even though it’s simple, this one activity gives me 26 facts about each of my students, so that’s 26 opportunities to make a connection with them.
For a simple example, on the C page, several students put C is for their cat. That is an opening for me to tell them about my cats, and easy connection is instantly made. I also learn about their siblings, favorite activities/food/music, and personality.
How to do it: There are two options for this activity!
Option 1: Google Slides Version: Each slide had its own colorful letter. They put what the letter represents to them and they can even include pictures!
Option 2: Print the front and back 26 square alpha boxes PDF sheet and have them write in each square what how the letter represents them.
Extension Idea: They have to find someone in the classroom that has a match to at least 3 of their boxes/slides. This will get them up, moving, and talking. It’s a perfect way to start building that positive classroom community!
