All About Me Back to School T Shirt Art & Writing Activity

This ‘T Shirt About Me’ art and writing activity, is a fun, first week back to school ice breaker for both boys and girls. It’s a really creative way for teachers and students to learn more about each other.

Invite students to respond to 30 prompts and questions in a personal and imaginative way, using doodles, words, ‘graffiti style’ lettering and illustrations.

**T shirt template 1: Art Activity **
There are 15 sections to illustrate responses to prompts, including:
Self portrait, name, age, grade, favourite color, fruit, vegetable, sport, film, song…

**T shirt template 2: Writing Activity **
There are 15 questions / prompts to respond to in written format, including:
My top 3 goals this year, something I like at school, something I find challenging,
if I were a superhero, I can make the world better by, I feel happy when, I feel sad when, I aim to, I wonder if…

The T Shirt templates measure approximately 22 x 18cm / 8 x 7 inches and are designed to fit US Letter and A4 paper size for printing.

The finished T shirts make a fabulous display, on the bulletin board or pegged up on a line as a garland.
The designs are inspired by Piet Mondrian’s abstract work and the pack includes a poster and garland to make the classroom colourful and inspiring.

Photographs of completed and partially completed examples included in the packet, use a black ball point pen and colored markers to create a modern, illustrative style to appeal to slightly older children, year 4+

The pack also contains activities for early finishers, including doodle pages and bookmarks to make.

UK/Aus/Can templates with ‘colour’ and ‘favourite’ spellings are included in the pack.
