Just a heads up: this product is almost identical to my “All About Me” booklet found here. The only difference between the two products is the theme of the clipart and that the one featured on this page includes a title page for Second, Third and Fourth Graders.
This is the perfect activity for students in Grades 3 and 4 to work on during the first days of school. You might even find it works for your second graders! If you are considering this product for your second grade students, please be sure to download the preview to make sure it’s right for you.
This is a meaningful activity booklet that keeps students busy and engaged, while providing you an opportunity to establish your routines and procedures for independent work.
There are three title pages included with this product: one for second, third, fourth grade students. I’ve included second grade as some students/classes may be ready for more challenging writing opportunities at the beginning of the year.
While students are working on the booklet, you have an opportunity to roam the room and have those quiet chats with students where you can give positive feedback and begin to develop your rapport with your kids. Plus, you know they are so excited to use their new markers and pencil crayons; this is a great way to let them do so, while still completing a purposeful task!
I have also included a page where as a class, you'll brainstorm a list of vocabulary words students might use in their responses in the booklet. This gives you another opportunity to present your expectations for how, as a class, you'll create anchor charts and other useful resources.
As that first week progresses, I have my students return to this booklet when they have finished other work. Then, on "Meet the Teacher Night", we leave them on our desks for parents to look through. It's a great resource that I've used for years. They also look adorable up on a bulletin board for all to see!
The great thing about this product is that it’s a mix-and-matcher. You can pick and choose which activities you want to use from one year to the next and from one student to another.
Please be sure to download the preview file. It really is the best description of the product. In order for you to be sure this is the right product for you and your grade level, the preview shows all the items included in this product.
Thanks so much for visiting my store!
