My absolute favorite activity sheets are previewed below. The “My Favorite Things!” worksheets are great for identifying objects, practicing vocabulary, and coloring in the item you like best! Once the sheet is completed, take a poll in the class. Let’s see who likes the same things! If you like both things equally, go ahead and color in both! This is a great time to ask your little ones questions to build their vocabulary and social skills.

All About Me Preschool Craft
This mirror craft for preschool is perfect for welcoming your little ones into the classroom. Let them know how special and unique they are in this creative craft. Make this activity super simple for age 2-3 by already having the aluminum foil and paper cut. Decorating your own personal mirror is tons of fun. Use crayons, pom poms, stickers, etc. to build fine motor skills and remember how special each one of us is!
Step 1: Gather your materials! If you are working with ages 2-3, have your paper and aluminum foil precut. Have your saying, “You are Special” or “You are Smart” written at the bottom. If you are working with ages 4-5, you can have them glue the foil to the paper. This is a great new texture to work with! I cut my cardstock paper in half, then cut my aluminum foil into 4 inch by 5 inch squares.
Step 2: Write your words at the bottom of the foil, then simply cut off the excess paper. Again, if you are working with a young age, you may want to have this prepared before craft time.
Step 3: Decorate! This part is the most fun! Have crayons, markers, stickers, pom poms, whatever you find that you think would be good for your little ones. Does your classroom have a theme for the year? Find something related! Add your popsicle stick to the back of your mirror when finished decorating.
Step 4: Take a step back and look at how beautiful and special you are in your brand new mirror! This is my favorite of the All About Me Preschool Crafts.
Preschool All About Me Books!
The beginning of preschool is so exciting! Check out these two book recommendations for circle time to go with the All About Me theme! These books are great for when it comes to talking about being able to do more grown up things and about each child’s unique personality.
My first book is called “All by Myself” by Mercer Mayer. This book is perfect for ages 2-3. It is super simple, with one sentence per page. Follow along with little critter as he does many things by himself and asserts his new found independence!
My second book is called, “Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse” by Kevin Henkes. This is a personal favorite of mine from childhood. This book is all about Lilly! We get to see the little mouse’s personality, favorite activities, and her brand new purple plastic purse! The book teaches an important lesson about being unique and remembering that being a part of the community means being respectful and kind. Great for ages 3-5.
