A Book About Me

All of us have some type of student created booklet for the first week of school.  This type of simple activity is great to have on hand!  My old copy was in need of new clip art and a simpler font.  (This little project took a LOT longer to complete than I thought it would!)  If you are looking for a new "Book About Me" or just want to add this PDF to your collection, feel free to download it HERE.  I've include directions on the last page for teacher use.  Please remember to remove the "Directions To The Teacher" page before copying the booklet for classroom use.
Hope you are enjoying the summer!

  8. Hello!

    My name is Missy Kennedy and I teach third grade. I am part of the postcard exchange and wanted to let you know about my class.

    Our school is Parkview Baptist School and is located in Baton Rouge, the capitol of Louisiana. We are celebrating our 30th birthday this year and are the largest private school (non-parochial) in the state.

    We are excited about getting to know more about your class. I have a postcard exchange page on my blog and hope you visit. We have some questions for you to answer listed on that page. I will post as I receive postcards.

    Looking forward to meeting you and your class,

  9. I recently saw a post you made on another website regarding Eleanor Roosevelt activities. I too teach 1st in TX, and was wondering if you'd be willing to share those with me? I would really appreciate it!

  10. CUTE blog. I'm your newest follower! I awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award. You can check it out over on my blog. :)

  11. I gave your blog the One Lovely Blog Award! Come check it out at

  12. I am totally diggin' on your back to school stuff. So many of the About Me books and "friend find" activities that I've seen so far would be too hard for my kids to read at the beginning of the year. These are perfect! Pop in for a visit if you find a moment . . . glad I found you :)
