If you are a kindergarten teacher, you know that young children love to talk about themselves. That’s why it’s important to have “all about me” activities that allow them to share their interests, preferences, and experiences. Here are some fun and purposeful All About Me Activities For Kindergarten.
These “all about me” activities are not only enjoyable for your students, but they also provide a great opportunity for the class to get to know one another. Incorporating an academic component can make them even more meaningful for your little learners. Give it a try and see the results!
- Self-portraits: Provide your students with mirrors, pencils, and paper, and let them draw themselves. Then have them share their drawings with the class and describe their features, such as hair color, eye color, and clothing. (Teaching Guided Drawing to Beginning Writers)
- Name games: Play games that help your students learn and remember the names of their classmates. For example, you can use a ball and have the kids toss it to each other while saying their names.
- Favorite things: Have your little learners draw about their favorite things, such as colors, animals, foods, and hobbies. Display their work on a bulletin board or in a class book.
- All About Me Digital Boom™ Deck Task Cards: This activity was created for little learners to share about themselves! Simple & easy questions for sharing with new teacher, classmates and class.
These “all about me” activities not only help little learners learn more about themselves, but also foster a sense of community and respect in the classroom.
