- This ‘Polo 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 students to express their interests, views and celebrate their uniqueness.
- Teachers often feedback that they learn new things about their class through these creative resources.
- Invite students to respond to over 30 prompts and questions in a personal and imaginative way, using doodles, words, ‘graffiti style’ lettering and illustrations.
- Use a black ball point pen and colored markers to create a modern, illustrative style to appeal to slightly older children, grade 4+
Polo template 1: Art Activity
- There are 16 sections to illustrate responses to prompts, including:
- Self portrait, name, age, grade, favorite movie, favorite subject, something you feel strongly about, and the opportunity to doodle…..
- Photographs of colored and outline art examples are included in the packet.
Polo template 2: Writing Activity
- There are 18 questions / prompts to respond to in written format, including:
- My top 3 goals this year, something I like at school, something I find challenging, I can make the world better by, I feel happy when, I feel sad when, 4 facts about me, my focus word for the year and why I chose it…..
- The finished polos make a fabulous display, on the bulletin board, pegged up on a line as a garland, on locker doors or journal covers.
- These 2 activities have been designed to complete on separate pieces of paper and can be glued together.
- I would not recommend that they be printed back to back on one sheet of paper as pen marks will show through to the other side.
- The packet includes a garland for early finishers to decorate. Choose from ‘All About Me’ or ‘All About Us” to make the classroom colorful and inspiring.
- UK/Aus/Can templates with ‘colour’ and ‘favourite’ spellings are included in the packet.
- The polo templates measure approximately 25 x 20cm / 10 x 8 inches and are designed to fit US Letter and A4 paper size for printing.
