Kindergarteners and first graders love to share information about themselves! With the lesson plan, All About Me! Things I Like, children will get the opportunity to do just that. Kids will express what they like through drawings, pictures, and writing, and they'll work on using complete sentences to describe some of their favorite things to do. Using a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative texts is an important stepping stone for young learners to become strong writers.

Learning Objectives

  • Students will be able to participate in collaborative conversations with their peers.
  • Students will be able to use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative texts.
