All About Me Books

SUMMER IS HERE!!! WOOHOO!!! I finally made it and let me tell you- it. feels. GREAT!

Before we let out for summer break one of our last activities we did was our "Me Books". The Me Book is an all-about-me book where the child writes their names, favorite animal, favorite color, about their best friend, their family, what they want to be when they grow up, etc. It takes a lot of hard work but looks fantastic in the end! It is a great way to show off how far their writing has come over the past year. Here are some pictures of our "Me Books"

 It ends with this adorable poem. I did not put pictures of all the pages up, just a few. you can create your own pages based on what you want. In our class we had a friend trace our feet and hands and then we had to cut them out and glue them into our book. The outside of our book is a construction paper body with arms that wrap around the front of the book when it is closed. I had them draw their own eyes (correct eye color) and they got to make their own hair out of contrsuction paper and glue it on.
