Start the new school year with an exciting getting-to-know you mini-book.
Build Classroom Community with All About Me Activities
Here at Teach Starter, we absolutely love “About Me” activities! They allow students to share their special hobbies, interests, and personal experiences with one another. This creates a remarkable opportunity for students to learn about each other, find common ground, and form strong relationships. By embracing and celebrating our differences, we can cultivate a positive and inclusive classroom community that fosters meaningful relationships and a sense of belonging.
The Perfect Getting to Know You Activity
This printable book is the perfect, no-prep activity for the first day of school. Students will complete a series of prompts to teach others about themselves. The prompts included in this journal-style template include:
- All about my subjects
- If I was an animal…
- When I grow up
- My friends
- My favourite things
- My favourite games
- Favourite foods
- All about movies
- Favourite books
- Favourite Music
Once your students have completed their journals, have them present them to the class or create a display using the books stapled together! Or, why not create space on the bookshelf for the completed journals, make time during the first week for your class to read each other’s All About Me Journals
Print the pages front-to-back, and choose for it to flip along the short edge.
