I decided to make my Me Map into a “Lift the Flap” book since I plan on doing my student teaching in Kindergarten. I wanted to present the information about myself in a way that was hands on and easy for my students to pick up and read on their own. I created the book as a recipe for the things that “make up” me and presented a different idea on each page. Each page has a picture on it that can be lifted up to reveal a photo of things that represent me. I also condensed my writings from my “About Me” page so that they would be easier for Kindergarteners to read and understand. I think that a “Lift the Flap” book would be an activity that would be simple and fun for kids to create. I would definitely use this idea in my Kindergarten classroom!
