Book: All About Me (Teacher)

Today I changed/updated an "All About Me" book that I read to the class on the first day of school. This helps them to learn a little about me and ,hopefully, they will find something that we have in common. This helps us to bond right at the beginning of the year and helps us to have a great year. I just used clipart that I already have on my computer and included pictures and images from the internet. This is what I ended up with:
The first week of school I also have the children make an "All About Me" book that they can share with the class. For the past couple of years, I have been trying really hard to have a sense of community in my classroom. It is much easier for the children to follow directions when they have good feelings about me and school right from the start.
Under the Reading tab at the top, I just posted info about 2 great resources I found for 1st Grade Common Core Reading Standards.
