All About Me bulletin boards are usually displayed at the start of the school year to get students acquainted both with the teacher and with the other students. These types of bulletin boards show off students’ favorite things, their hobbies, and other information that will help others to know of their unique traits.
I’ve always given students an ‘all about me’ sheet to fill out and color on the first day of school. These student data sheets are also called student interest surveys. I would also give them student biodata sheets to take home for their parents to fill out and return. The all about me posters was always a great ice breaker for conversations with my students. When all the students had completed their sheets, I would put all of the posters on display to make a large all about me bulletin board or hang them on a line.

How to Display All About Me Bulletin Boards
Make a large bulletin board of posters: Layout all the all about me posters on the wall or on a large bulletin board. Make sure that that posters are at the eye level of your students so that they can read about each other.
Have students add information gradually: By keeping the All About Me student sheets in dry-erase sleeves, students can take out theirs and add information to it as the term progresses. For some of the writing prompts, students might not have the answer until after a few days or a few weeks.
