I use this activity the first week of school or when I get a new student. My students love completing all of the activities in the packet. Once it is finished, I send the packet home. You could also display some the pages in the hall or in your room.
► Now includes a version with UK/Canada Spelling (colour/favourite)
⭐ If you are a speech language pathologist, I have a specific version of this packet made for you! Please click below to get the speech therapy version

This version is for classroom teachers or counselors.
• This is me: The student draws their own portrait and describes their eyes and hair.
• My favorite things: The student draws their favorite food, toy, animal, and colors in their favorite color on a crayon.
• Design a t-shirt: The student gets to design a cool t-shirt that they would wear to school.
• My Perfect Lunch: The student will draw their favorite lunch, color in their favorite drink, and color their favorite condiments!
• My family: The students draws a picture of their family. I encourage them to tell me about them (their names, what they like to do as a family, ect..).
• My Pet: The student circles and colors the pet they have (or want) and draws a picture of it.
• My Home: The student draws a picture of their home or room and checks which type of home they have (house/apartment)
• My Summer Break: The student draws a picture of something they did over the summer. They are encouraged to tell the group a story about it!
• My Favorite Class: The student will circle or color their favorite class and tell why.
• Classroom Getting to Know You: This is a BONUS coloring activity. The students will answer questions and color the part of the classroom scene next to them. By the end of the page the students will have learned about each other!
This activity is designed for students in k-3 (use your discretion within these grade levels). Some of my older elementary students and middle schoolers also enjoy this. You can use this activity to target following directions, describing, vocabulary, and turn taking skills.
