Inside: The All About Me theme is a great way for young children to not only learn and share more about themselves, but also others as well. This collection has over 30 different activities that are perfect for preschool. Includes free printables, too!
At the beginning of the school year, as we are learning about ourselves and others, we like to include an all about me theme.
At this age, children are just starting to form friendships and enjoy play dates.
They are learning how to think about others, notice their thoughts and feelings, and how to communicate with them.
These all about me theme activities include lots of hands-on ideas that encourage young children to get to know themselves and their friends.
