My Special Face
When I look in a mirror I see my face,
And all of its parts are in their place.
I see two little ears and one little nose,
I see two little eyes and one little mouth.
When I look in the mirror, what do I see?
A wonderful and special me! (Give yourself a hug!)

All About Me
A great way for children to share something about themselves (and to boost their self confidence) is to send home a lunch bag with the following note stapled to it: All About Me Bag ,As part of our theme "all about me," we would like to welcome the children to share things about themselves with their classmates. Find 3-5 things that represent your
child and place them in the bag. Some ideas may include an object that is their favorite color, or a label/package from their favorite food, or something they may collect. Please make sure it fits in the bag! We will be sharing these bags with the other children during group this week. You may bring them in any day this week! We look forward to learning more about your child!

All About Me!
Provide each child with a cut out like below made from Poster Board. Have them decorate it at home to represent themselves. They can use whatever they would like such as fabric for clothes, yarn for hair etc. These come out so cute! Hang them around the room or in the hall and let the other children guess who is who.
My Family Tree
Use a design foam roller to make the trunk. Paint the branches with a paint brush and add the leaves with a leaf stamp or sponge.
Send the apples home for the Parents to write their family members names on them. Glue the apples to the tree.
