This "About Me" Roll-Up gives students a chance to share a ton about themselves in a unique, interactive, and space-saving display. Classmates and visitors can see all the info by turning the roll-up around AND peeking through the cut-out windows!
Let me show you how it works. First copy the two pages front to back. Have students fill out all the sections. The front side includes "quick facts," a "favs corner," space to tell some activities they enjoy, space to tell what they are excited about and nervous about for the new school year, and a self portrait.
On the back, students record five positive traits about themselves, and fill out a picture and caption for something few people know about them. Once the paper is rolled up, these two sections will only be seen through the the peek-through windows.
Next, students cut open their peek-through windows. They leave one side attached to create a flap to fold open.
Now the roll-up is ready to... roll up! Students add a little glue to the edge section and attach the sides together.
The sections on the inside line up just right with the peek through windows to make a fun little surprise for the viewer.
Stand the "About Me" Roll-Ups on the corner of students' desks for a perfect display piece for Back-to-School or Meet-the-Teacher Night. Or simply use them for a gallery walk for your own class to get to know each other.
