Getting to know your students during the first week of school is important! This project will not only help you get to know them, but they will also learn more about each other!
After reading the book "Only One You" you can create this simple craft with your elementary students. The written component can either be dictated and recorded (kindergarten students) or written by the students themselves. This book also has great opportunities for discussion throughout. Don't forget to lead a rich book talk!
Hanging this project in the hall outside your classroom would be a great way to show parents on back to school night how much you already know about their child. Enjoy!!
I have also created a back to school "fish fun" gift for you to give to your students to take home. You can learn more about that here:

This craft is included in a three craft set for a discounted price and can be found here:
