Perfect for Back to School - "All About Me" Activity that will encourage your students to tell about themselves to their new classmates.

Need a display for your kids' hand-drawn portraits at the beginning of school so that they can tell "all about me"? This craftivity makes a great display for Open House or for just showcasing your class for the new year!

"Selfies" are all the rage. Here is an activity that combines art with a "selfie."

No room for a 2-page display? Try the one-page option. Back it with construction paper which makes a colorful frame.

***** {NOTE}
When I created this resource a couple of years ago, I thought that one selfie craft would be enough for my students. However, when I made a resource for a Selfie with Santa, THEY STILL LOVED IT!! (Or maybe it was just because Santa was involved.)

THEN, last year, one student asked me about a new selfie craft for each new holiday and event so that he could make a book. goes! I am on a mission to get the different versions ready and posted for other classrooms. It is one thing to get them ready for your class...for the next day. It is another thing to actually get them ready and posted in time for others to use them.

Here are links to my other Post-a-Selfie craftivities (so far):
