"About Me" Roll-Ups: A Fun and Fresh Back-to-School Display

Looking for a fun and fresh "About Me" activity for back-to-school?

Check this one out!

This "About Me Roll-Up" is perfect for the first week of school!  Students fill out the front and back get-to-know-you sections, cut out the peek-through windows, and then roll their paper and glue the edges, forming a stand up tube. Classmates and visitors can then see all the fun info by turning the roll-up around AND peeking through the windows! (The Thinker Builder)

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!

You can do the one-page (front-and-back) roll-up, or the "double" roll-up, with two pages for an extra large roll!

Let me show you how it works. For the single-roll, 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 out their peek-through windows.

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.
