The first day of our new school year is rapidly approaching, and I am making plans and getting materials together. We have a few first day traditions, one of which is filling out an "All About Me" page. When DG was younger, we made handprints, footprints, measured height with string and stored it in a pocket, and our "page" was a little book. Now that she's older, she makes a page/pages that go at the front of her yearly portfolio.
I'm uploading our "All About Me" for this year if you'd like to download it and use it as is or modify it for your child. It includes a space to write favorites including Bible verse, book of the Bible, books, author, songs, singer/musician, color, food, sport/recreation, movie, school subject. There is also space for your child to write what they'd like to learn more about this year and to write other things about him/herself and to name some friends. There is a box for a photo or drawing of your child on the front and then a box for a photo or drawing of friends or whatever your child would like to add.
Thinking back on our very first book I became nostalgic :-) ---- I decided to add an extra page this year for a handprint and height measurement even though we've not done that in a couple of years and it's included in the file as well.
