Nothing is more important than building relationships with your students at the beginning of the year. Use these ideas and samples for All About Me projects and other getting started ideas.
Students can use Wixie to combine text, images, and voice narration to share information about themselves and build essential skills for future digital project work.
Wixie includes an entire folder of All About Me templates you can use to get to know your students and help them get to know each other.
Students create a postcard to share information about an important event or experience from their summer vacation.
Students create, print, and share a trading card they have created to introduce themselves to their teacher and classmates.
Have students create a simple character traits diagram to share information about themselves and build skills for future character trait projects. This sample has a twist, where all descriptors begin with the same letter as the student's name.
Start the year off right by having students share information about themselves that is both factual and opinion! This project can jump start a lot of powerful conversations!
After reading Merle Peek's Mary Wore Her Red Dress, students adapted the verse to tell their classmates about themselves.
Use this choice board to put students in charge of how they will demonstrate their learning.

I got to spend the morning with our first graders in @CubRunCousino, @MrsJMJensen, and @CubRunVodi’s classes learning to use Wixie! Each student made an “about me” page and learned how to record themselves reading what they wrote! #learningisfunatcubrun #CubRunCubbies #FCPSOn pic.twitter.com/7Hq1HNzrrE— Maggie Brown (@MaggieBrownK12) October 12, 2021
