Kids love talking about themselves - their likes, their dislikes, and details about everything inbetween. Spark their interest in writing with a mini-book about their favourite subject...themselves!
Here are some ideas, to get you started.
My name is...
A portrait of me...
This is my family...
My favourite animal is...
My favourite toy is...
When I grow up I want to be...
My favourite food is...
My favourite colour is...
These are my handprints - dip child's hand in paint
Once all the pages have been completed, either staple the book toether, or punch two holes in the spine and thread a ribbon through it, to tie it all together.
