All About Me


Materials

  • Construction paper
  • Crayons
  • Ribbon or Yarn

Directions

  1. Talk with your child about what makes her culture special and unique. Have a conversation with her about where her relatives are from, what language she speaks at home, special foods she eats, and family holidays she celebrates.
  2. Then, create an “All about Me book.” On the cover help your child write her name. Then have her to draw a picture of herself or tape a photo.
  3. Encourage your child to draw pictures on pieces of construction paper that represent different aspects of her culture, such as special foods she eats or holidays she celebrates at home. Afterwards, have her describe what she drew and write down the words under each picture.
  4. When finished, punch holes along the margins of the paper to make a book. Thread ribbon or yarn through the holes to tie the book together.
  5. Place the book in a special place to share with family and friends!
