This wheel combines a popular back to school craft with an all about me writing activity into a fun first day of school apple spinner. Low-prep and perfect for preschool and kindergarten through second grade.
All about me is another popular theme for the beginning of the year.
Kids get the chance to write down what makes them unique and special. It helps them introduce themselves to their classmates and teacher and identify other classmates with whom they may have things in common. A fun way to start new friendships.
Included on the spinner:
- This is how I write my name _______
- I am _______ years old
- One thing I want to do this year ________
- When I grow up I want to be ________
- My teacher’s name is _______
While our photos only show the “first day of school” label on the apple, our template comes with several label options:
- First day of school
- First day of preschool
- First day of kindergarten
- First day of 1st grade
- First day of 2nd grade
