An all about me preschool theme is perfect for that first week of school because not only will it help you get to know all of the new little learners filling your preschool classroom, but it will also give them the opportunity to open up and learn about their new classmates!
It’s just one of many different preschool themes that are great for starting a new school year, but its our personal favorite and we spend the entire week crafting with the letters in our names, creating self portraits, and learning about body parts while dancing and practicing fine motor skills with the different preschool activities that you’ll find below!
All About Me Preschool Theme Activities
Perfect for the beginning of the year, this all about me poster will have your preschoolers revealing their favorite colors, favorite foods, and so much more!
Having them work together in small groups is a fun way to introduce them all to each other!
One of the first things that we do when we put together a new preschool theme is compile a list of our favorite books on the topic.
This list of all about me books gives your preschoolers the opportunity to learn about names, families, and so much more!
Do your little learners need to get some energy out?
Grab this printable Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes activity, put on the song, learn about parts of the body, and dance some of those wiggles out during circle time!
Drawing self portraits is a fantastic way to start off an all about me theme and having photo puzzles made from pictures of your preschoolers is such a fun way to work on those early math skills.
Make a mirror available while they’re working on their self portraits and they’ll get the chance to draw their own facial features while they work on their fine motor skills!
Wow your students with the magic of salt painting!
Name activities are absolutely perfect for an all about me preschool unit and adding a fine motor element, especially one as colorful as this salt painting activity makes them even better!
Self portraits are a big part of our all about me theme but this activity kicks them up a notch!
Give your preschoolers some butcher paper and some crayons and let them create their own life size portraits!
Add the printable labels and they’ll be learning body parts while they draw!
A hand print book is one of the best ways to get your students excited about an all about me theme!
They already love learning about themselves and their new friends, but use their hand prints to make a book all about themselves and they’ll love it even more!
Teaching little learners about big emotions is such an important part of an all about me theme!
This matching game is a fun way to work on their matching skills while creating a great opportunity to talk about different emotions and how to handle them!
