An All About Me Book is such a great way to learn about your students personally and academically during the first weeks of school. The all about me writing templates are a fun, low prep, meaningful task that also give a glimpse into your students’ hobbies, interests, and goals.
Below are 3 All About Me Book formats that will fit your needs depending on what type you want to use with your students. The three formats include a traditional book, a crafty backpack book, or a digital format.
1. TRADITIONAL ALL ABOUT ME BOOK (PRINTABLE PDF)
Using a book format is such a simple and efficient way of having students create back to school books. Each template focuses on a unique theme. So, you can use some or all of the templates with your students.
The writing templates include:
- This is Me (Portrait)
- More About Me (Traits)
- My Goals
- My Hobbies
- My Family
- When I Grow Up
- My Favorites
- My Home
- My School
- What I Want to Learn
- My School Favorites
- My Vacation
For templates that require writing, there are differentiated templates included with sentence starters or basic box fill-ins. Also included are ELL/MLL specific pages for students to write about their country and traditions.

2. “WHAT I BRING” BACKPACK BOOK (PRINTABLE PDF)
This crafty all about me book comes together to make an adorable keepsake or bulletin board display. Each topic or school subject comes with a different object that sticks out of the backpack.
This resource works best for students in grades 3-5 since many of the tabs include the different school subjects (Science, Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies).
3. DIGITAL ALL ABOUT ME BOOK
Lastly, the digital option is the easiest to prep as it is 100% paperless. It is the digital version of the traditional all about me book described above.
Students simply type into text boxes. There are some spots for students to place clipart or photos as well.
You can feel free to delete any slides you don’t think your students would want to use. Also, students can pick and choose which templates they want to use for their own unique digital keepsake.
