This is a printable that helps students (and the teacher) to create a book to introduce themselves to their classmates.
The 12-page document contains:
-A cover page
-8 pages of fill-in-the-blank information students can write about themselves. (Ex. "I like _____________, ____________, and ________ but I don't like ___________, ____________, or _______________.")
-Teacher instructions for assembling the books and using them in the classroom.
In addition to this document, you will need a sheet of 10 x 18 inch construction paper for each student. You will also need a stapler, glue, and something the students can use to decorate their books, such as magazines or crayons.
I've used this book at the start of each of my fourth grade years and it's been a great icebreaker. I've found it's best to allow students 2 or 3 one-hour sessions to work on their books, especially if you spread it out over a few days.
Thanks for looking! I hope you find this useful.
