I have had an "All About Me" board in my first grade class and now second grade. I bought the BB set. I change it weekly. The week before the student is on the board, I send home a letter with questions that students answer on small index cards. They write the following: Their favorite color, TV show, book, what they want to be when they grow up, their pet/pet they want, and why they are special. They can decorate the cards however they want. I ask them in the letter to bring a picture of themself, a family picture, and a picture of pets. They also are asked to bring in their favorite book. I tape their cards and pictures on the board. I keep their book on the ledge under the board. On Monday, I introduce the student of the week using the board. The student stands at the board and reads the answers. On Tuesday, their favorite book is either read by them or me. On Wednesday, we interview the student. On Thursday, I cut 8x11 sheets of construction paper in half. I use the student's favorite color. The class writes one sentence about what they like about the student and they illustrate it. (Of course I proofread the pages.) Then I make a book for the student. I illustrate the cover. On Friday, the student of the week is given their book, a bookmark and we sing a "you are special" song. I tell the class to remind me each day if I forget to do anything. I usually remember though. Students love their books and can not wait to be on the board! I choose students who are new or who need a self-esteem boost first. Everyone gets a turn.
