This is my post on the class website for the All About Me unit. Even though I was only there for a few days of the unit, I could tell it was fun for the children (with self portraits, and charts about facial features).
A lot of the content on these charts is too difficult for pre-K, but it is still useful to see the various types of posters that can be created to encourage writing and good discussions. I like some of the more visual posters in particular, such as the one with the parts of a face broken down into what each should do when having a conversation. These skills are very important to start working on in pre-K and Kindergarten, so students can begin to build respect with one another. I want to have morning meetings, which would involve my students listening to their peers and taking turns. Posters with reminders that you can simply tap when students are off track help keep a positive learning environment!
