There’s nothing more fun at the beginning of the school year than learning all about your new students…well that and organizing! It’s fun to learn all the new different personalities in your class, but it’s also really helpful as a teacher to use your students’ likes to your advantage. Anything you can do to keep your students engaged is a-okay in my book!
To help me get to know my students a little bit better at the start of the year, and because I have an obsession with crafts, I put together this fun little All About Me Backpack craft!
The front pocket will hold a crayon representing each student’s favorite color, a little notepad with his/her favorite thing to do in school and a mini scrapbook of his/her family!
And on the back…
A lunchbox complete with a favorite food apple and a birthday cupcake for dessert 😉 And you can’t forget a cell phone and favorite book!
This fun little craft is available in my TpT store!
