The All About Me Bag
The beginning of the year is an exciting time to make new friends. On the first day of school, I bring the All About Me Bag to share. I fill the bag with 4-6 special items that tell something about me. For example, I might choose a piece of cross stitch to show one of my favorite hobbies or a pointe shoe to talk about my love of ballet. Each child takes the bag home for 1 night and brings it back filled with 4-6 special items that tell us something about him or her. After the child shares, classmates are given an opportunity to ask a question or share a positive comment.
