Free Back to School Activity

Is it too soon to be talking about ‘Back to School’ already? I know, I know, we’ve not even finished this year yet, so why start talking about next?

In case you didn’t know (and you’ve probably guessed!), I am a relentless planner. My family are always finding little lists I’ve written in notebooks, on scraps of paper, and, well, just about anywhere! This extends to work too. So, yes, guilty! I’ve already started thinking about next year.

All About Me Flag Bunting

One of the most exciting parts of any new year is getting to know the new faces which will be in the classroom with you. All About Me Bunting is a fun and simple Back to School activity for your students to complete in the first week of school.  You can download this activity for free in my Free Resource Library.

Getting to Know Each Other

Students can fill out their information on their flag. They will share their name, their birthday, some of their favorite things, and even their picture. I’ve seen some teachers print photos to glue here, but it’s just as much fun to ask the students to draw their self-portrait. I’ve also included a ‘When I grow up, I want to be’ section, which always prompts fun and imaginative answers.

Decorate the Classroom

Once it’s done, you’ll have a host of colorful flags, and you can fix them to some string or yarn to display in the classroom. It will bring a bit more color to any room, and will be a great way to personalize the learning space! Once it’s on display, you can ‘walk the line’ and talk about each flag, giving the little learners a wonderful chance to get to know more about each other.

English and Spanish Versions

It’s available in black/white and color versions, and I’ve included English (US & UK) and Spanish versions. Please be sure to only print the pages you need.

English (UK version is also included)
