Students reflect on things that are meaningful to them…then share with their classmates!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 3rd grade / 3 - 8 years

You will need:

  • Enough white paper bags for each student
  • Optional: your own “all about me bag”
  • List of what students need to bring
  • Materials to decorate the bags ( Lakeshore Large Crayon Packs or Best-Buy Washable Broad-Tip Markers )

  • pre-k – 1st grade students will need to bring:
  • Their favorite book
  • A drawing of something they like to do
  • A picture or postcard from a great place they have visited

  • 2nd – 3rd grade students will need to bring:
  • Their favorite book
  • A picture or drawing of something they would like to do in the future
  • A picture or drawing of something they would like to improve on
  • An object they like/collect or a hobby
  • A picture of their favorite movie or band

Directions

  1. Put a bag on each student’s desk. Encourage children to use the materials to write their name on and decorate their bag.
  2. Give students a list of items they should bring from home.
  3. Optional: bring in your own items from the list. This will help students understand the activity as well as help them get to know you better.
  4. Explain that they should take some time when they’re picking out the items because they will be sharing them with the class. Remind them that all the items must be able to fit in a simple paper bag.
  5. On the day students bring in their “all about me bag,” invite them to take turns sharing what’s in their bag.
