I only have one full time preschooler in my home daycare/preschool this year. The other children are infants and younger toddlers. I have one other preschooler who only comes as needed so this little sweetie is feeling a little lonely. I don’t have a lot of one-on-one time with her. Plus, her little brother recently broke his arm so I think she’s been hoping for a little extra attention. I decided an All About Me booklet would be a great way for us to focus on her and all the things she loves. When I told her we were going to make a book all about her, she was so excited. I put the other children down for a nap but I let her stay up a little while so we could work on her book together, just the two of us.
I asked her about the things she would like to include in her book. Then, I print out her booklet pages.
We ended up with ten pages in all. They are super simple pages. There is nothing special about them, but if you would like to complete this activity with your child and you don’t want to take the time to create pre-printed pages or hand-write them, then you can print them out for free at the end of this post. .
Your child can draw and color his favorite things on each page if he wishes. We decided to cut out magazine pictures. When we couldn’t find the magazine pictures we needed, we chose public domain images from Pixabay to use in our All About Me booklet. My little one glued the pictures into her booklet.
Making this little booklet together created the opportunity I needed to focus solely on this sweet little girl. It only took a short amount of time to complete yet it made her feel important.
