About Me - Self-Reflective Writing Template for Primary & High School Students

About Me - Self-Reflective Writing Template for Primary & High School Students

A two-page writing resource which students can use to express themselves, and to learn more about other students' likes, fears, and aspirations. Teachers can use this resource at the start of the year, to learn more about each student. If appropriate for your class later in the year, students could fill these in anonymously, and place them in a pile. The papers are then shared out, and when each student receives another person's "About Me" paper, they must guess who wrote it, and explain why. This exercise can promote class discussion, bonding and socialization, and assist with anti-bullying strategies. Students should write their reflections honestly, and bravely. There is space at the top of each page for illustrations, if students choose to draw themselves as well as answering the questions. Two sets in different fonts are included.
