All About Me Free Printable – First Day Of School Tradition

tsm 2

The first day of school is a mile marker, and I am obsessed with taking pictures to preserve the rite of passage. Although pictures speak a thousand words, they don’t tell the whole story. Part of what is exciting about a new school is how much kids change in a single year – what they learn, what they like, how they write and think and, of course, how they look. In thinking about how to preserve those sweet changes, I came up with an “All About Me” printable for my daughter to fill out. 

Last spring I created a Thank You Teacher for my daughter’s class, and I had so much fun seeing how all of the kids filled it out. Using that idea I created a form for my daughter to fill out about her favorite things, in her adorable handwriting.

(Of course, we filled this one out before the first day of school, so we don’t yet know her teacher’s name. We will have to fill that, along with the photo, in later.)

Now not only will I always be able to remember her favorite things, but I will also be able to see it all in her hand – including her signature. Oh I love this idea so much, I just wish I thought of it before my daughter entered Kindergarten.

The next thing I did was make an All About Me printable for all of the grades, because you can be sure I will have my daughters fill it out all the way through high school. Even though Sissy can’t fill it out in her handwriting yet, I even made one for preschool so I can at least fill out her thoughts until she can master her own pencil.

The All About Me printable captures three important parts of childhood — your child’s thoughts, a photo and their handwriting. Each changes so much in a year so taking this snapshot is a great way to look back and see how much your child has grown.

BIC Fight For Your Write

Bic is dedicated to encouraging the importance of handwriting. Handwriting builds a solid foundation for school success. Research shows that handwriting is a foundational skill that can influence student’s reading, writing, language use and critical thinking. Because of these benefits experts recommend at least 15 minutes of handwriting each day for students, yet 75% of students in grades 4-12 write below grade level on a national writing exam. 

Join Bic to Fight For Your Write and take the handwriting pledge to encourage the act of handwriting in my home and throughout my community because writing makes us all awesome! When you take the pledge (through September 14, 2015) you will be entered to win a $1,200 prize pack that includes $1,000 in cash and $200 in Bic stationary. 

Plus for each person who takes the pledge, Bic will donate a pen or pencil to AdoptAClassroom.org up to 200,000 pens/pencils.

  1. I love these and can not wait to print them out! I was wondering if you had any Last day of school All about me printables?

    • HI Angie – Great question. I did make one for my daughter, but I never made more. It is on my list to blog soon 🙂

      • I love the idea from Angie. It would be awesome to have this also for the last day. So glad I found your blog.

  2. Do you have a “First Day of Pre-K” printable available? These are beautiful. Thank you so much for creating them! I now have a binder for each of my children.

    • Unfortunately, I only created first day of Preschool. Everyone calls it something different, so it is hard. (We call it VPK.)

  3. Did you or can you make ones that say one year old, two year old etc for artwork done at daycare!! Thanks
