Help children learn more about their families and, in turn, themselves with this project.
Give each child a sheet of colored construction paper. At the top of the page, write this phrase:
"All about __________"
[fill in child's name in place of the line]
Have children take their papers home to decorate -- with family photos, drawings, magazine pictures, and so on -- that provide information about themselves. When children bring their papers back, let them talk about what the decorations stand for. Finally, laminate the pages and assemble them in a class booklet for everyone to enjoy.
