All About Me Unit!

Hi Friends!  I'm so exhausted so this will be short and sweet!  I've had tons of requests for an "All About Me" unit...well, it's done!  It has already been posted to tpt and I bought a DJ Inkers commercial license so this unit is full of DJ Inkers Cuteness!!  Check out some of our centers and activities for the week.  You can check out my unit HERE.  


We picked letters out of a bag and found it and traced it on our paper.

Sorting letters and numbers

Practicing reading our sight words and writing them

Our weekly pocket chart story using our HF words and color words.  This was great because I had several students reading the sentences...they were so happy they could READ!

I hung up these boys with letters around the room...students had to search for them and then trace the letter once it was found

So fun!  

Fun little shape matching game

Number sequence game

This activity went perfect with our new Go Math Series and Common Core

Patterning...and they did SO GOOD!

We made these cute little presents with letter tiles to spell our names

More Name Fun!

We made "ourselves"...LOVE how they always turn out with cute little personalities

Here we are measuring our friends with yarn...Seriously the kids loved this more than any other group I've done this with...they were SO into it!  


Here's what we did with our yarn after measuring

This envelope held our string on the back of our little poem and self portrait


I'll give this unit away to 1 random person who comments....ummm....sometime tomorrow (Sept 15th).
Thanks for reading!!

  100. I am LOVING this unit. Ever since I downloaded the bloglovin app, your blogs is one of my favorites. I have 35 kindergarteners this year on an early bird/late owl schedule, so its been challenging, to say the least, to find lessons that are motivating and keep all my cuties on task. This is also our first year adopting CCSS. I really hope you consider me for your free give away. The energy you put into creating this unit would not go to waste in my class. Thanks!
