All About Me Numbers Concertina

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF, Word | 8 pages | Years: F - 1

A fun activity to use during the first week of school that encourages students to introduce themselves and to think about numbers.

Use this teaching resource during the first week of school to get to know your students and to assess their ability to write their own name and numbers 0-10. This first week of school activity is also ideal to use as a classroom display.

Use this template to create a concertina by following these simple steps:

  1. Select the school font required and choose from the selection of boy and girl designs.
  2. Read aloud each incomplete sentence. Explain how to complete each sentence.
  3. Ask your students to shade the face of the template to look like themselves. You might like to use craft materials.
  4. Cut along the dotted line.
  5. Fold along the bold lines to create a concertina.
  6. Display in the classroom by hanging with pegs along a length of a string.

Alternatively, an editable version of the resource has been provided, as well as a version where a photo of an individual student may be added.

    Fantastic activity. It would be great to see a template with a blank head space to glue a photo of the student on.

      Hi laurenc, We have your change request and will let you know when it is ready.

    Is there an option for NSW Foundation? It seems like an activity for infants so I'm surprised that NSW Cursive is the only NSW option.

      Hi Amy, Yes, you are right! The files were mislabelled and I have fixed them now for you.
