The activity "Just Like Me"
Does anyone know this? Can you explain it to me?

We just played this!
I'm not sure if I played it correctly, but my K students loved it!

We were in a circle and I would say something like, "I have brown eyes." If the students have brown eyes, they would stand up and say, "Just like me!" Then I would say, "I have blue eyes" or whatever... they loved it! It was simple enough that everyone could participate, and began some conversations (one group noticed that they all had brown eyes!). It was neat :)

A favorite
I did this with my 1st graders last year. We also had some good conversations. The kids would often request it on Mondays so that we could go over simple things that many kids might have done over the weekend. For example, I would say something like, "I played outside over the weekend" or "I read a book over the weekend." They loved shouting out "Just like me!" It was pretty funny how much they enjoyed it!
